A Message from the Chairman

ChairHello everyone,

We recently held a new members meeting at the Carriage House in Higham.  I must thank all the Group Leaders who were there.  Quite a few of the new members came and there was a nice atmosphere with advantages in both directions, the new members have questions to ask us and we have the opportunity to ask them if the U3A is turning out to be what they hoped for.  As happened at the last new members meeting, new groups emerged, a ukulele group, a board games group.  Several other suggestions were made and it is quite exciting to be part of this.  We do need new groups, of course, as now that we have been running for five years some group leaders may feel that they have done enough.  This month, sadly, Roger decided to stand down from the History Group after leading it from the beginning of our U3A.  I can understand this as I led a group for about five years in Kettering U3A and I decided at a certain point I wanted to let it go, but in my case two other members took it on so that was a good solution.  I know I often ask you to think about starting a group, but they are the lifeblood of the organisation and we canít go on without them, so please if you have a hobby, perhaps consider it with a friend, you will be well supported
