The committee and I would like to welcome you to our web site. We work hard with our web master, Geoff Williams, to try and ensure that it is kept up to date and has relevant information for you. You will find details of all our groups, together with their meeting times as well as trips and events. We hope that you will access it regularly as a useful source of information.

Earlier in the year we welcomed some new members and I hope that you will soon feel at home amongst us. Over the past few months we have seen the Rummikub and Bananagram sessions become part of our regular activities. We have agreed to produce another panto with the support of many members helping in all sorts of ways, including Pat, our producer, and those acting and those helping with costumes and scene production. This will be performed at our Christmas meal, with another performance in January.

Following the success of our Scotland trip earlier this year, we are repeating it again next year. Remember it is your U3A and so if you have any ideas, please talk to me or Linda Hornby, our groups’ coordinator, and for events or outings, talk to Ann Wilkins.

The U3A organisation seeks to enhance and change people’s lives through education. Retired or semi-retired people come together to learn, 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. In conclusion, the committee and I ask for your continued support as we seek to make Silhill U3A exciting and challenging for all its members.

Derek Giles, Chairman.
