General Monthly Meetings
These take place on the second Tuesday of each month in Littleton Village Hall. Doors are open from 2:00 and talks which are free of charge begin at 2:30. Talks usually last about an hour and are followed by tea and biscuits. All U3A members are most welcome.
Contact the speakers organiser, Julia Whitburn, contact details, for further details.
The speaker is asked to start at 2.30 pm, but we love to see you, the audience, when the doors open at 2.00 pm, so that you have time to chat with your friends, meet new members. The talk usually lasts for around one hour with questions, and we then enjoy a cup of tea and biscuit before leaving at around 4.00 pm.
Not all members have cars or are able to drive, and the bus service does not fit in with our timings. Please help fellow members with their journey to the meetings where you can.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR PREPARING AND SERVING TEAS
Each group who are allotted the month to serve refreshments will come to the meeting at 2pm bringing all that is required to carry out this task ie:
4 pts of milk
Mixed packet of biscuits (Aldi are very reasonable)
Medium jar of coffee
10-12 tea bags or a small box of them
A small bag of sugar
3 tea towels
Everything you bring and is left over please take home and use yourselves. There will be £4 available for each group to claim each month if needed from Freda Bates, Secretary. We hope you understand the new arrangements, but if not, do ask us to clarify them.
On the day, please arrive at Littleton Hall by 2pm to lay out cups and saucers etc., before the talk starts. The hot water heater doesn’t take long to heat up. Alongside are very clear instructions on how to use it. The dishwasher, which completes a cycle in just a few minutes, should be switched on at least 20 minutes before needed. During the talk, please sit at the rear of the hall close to the door so that you can make a quick exit as soon as the talk has finished. Thank you for your co-operation.
