At the August Core meeting I deeply regretted having to announce the resignation of our Vice Chairman, Anne Badger, for health reasons. I would like to thank Anne for everything she has done for Silhill U3A over the last 6 years and she will be sorely missed on the Committee. We all send her every best wish for a full recovery.

So the search is now on for a new Vice Chairman and I have asked for nominations by October. Please contact Rita Bennett or myself on the contacts page for a nomination form.

The University of the Third Age (U3A) movement is a unique and exciting organisation which provides, through its U3As, life-enhancing and life-changing opportunities. Retired and semi-retired people come together and learn together, not for qualifications but for its own reward: the sheer joy of discovery!

Members share their skills and life experiences: the learners teach and the teachers learn, and there is no distinction between them.

The U3A movement is supported by its national organisation, the Third Age Trust.
