To all Silhill U3A members

It gives me much pleasure to welcome you to our U3A web site. Our committee spends a considerable amount of time and energy making our group so vibrant and successful. This includes those who run and organise our various groups, arrange for our speakers, give support to our members, plan specific one off events and promote and organise our trips and events programme. There are also those who help to make our regular core meetings run smoothly, including setting up and clearing the room and providing refreshments during our break. They all do sterling work.

For those of you, who are new members, look at the various groups and particularly the new singing group which meets at Marie Curie on Tuesdays at 6.30pm for 7.00pm. The leader is excellent and we join with others of all ages to have an enjoyable singing and learning time, finishing about 8.00pm. You need no previous singing experience to join.

As with any organisation, its success depends on all pulling their weight and working as a team and it is these aspects, I think, which have made our U3A so popular. So I would encourage you all to contribute to the future success of our U3A, whether it is helping on the core days, supporting the events that are organised or maybe even suggesting and running a new group. If you feel you can offer to help in any way, have any new ideas or if indeed you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to talk to me. I would encourage you all to come along to our Christmas meal in December. I have inside information that there are surprises in store. In conclusion, it is a real privilege to be chairman of such a great group and I will continue to work to ensure its success.
Keep up the good work!
