March Meetings & Talks

Thursday 4 March 2021 @ 7.30pm - Steve Tricker Deer management in Suffolk

Steve Tricker is Suffolk born and bred, originating from Eastbridge. He learnt how to shoot at the age of 3. He started work in the construction business where he spent 20 years. He then became a self employed mole catcher before re-training as a butcher. For the last 10 years he has been involved in deer management.

In 2014, Steve and Lynn set up Truly Traceable, a husband and wife team of deerstalking, butchering and beautifully encrusting fully traceable meat. An award winning producer of handmade pies and sausage rolls in small batches at home from their own venison and other game.

Steve will talk about the reasons for deer management, from “the field to the table”, inspection and the pies that are the end product.

Steve has asked if you wish take part in a 'pre-talk poll / quiz' to see how well you know your British Deer! The answers will all be revealed on Thursday night! - To view and respond, click here: Deer Management - Pre-talk poll

Treasurer Vacancy

Carole Moore has acted as Treasurer for Beccles u3a for 6 years in June and she is now required by the constitution to stand down.

Carole has provided brilliant support to Beccles u3a generally and the Committee in particular, not only through her reliable financial and book keeping skills but also her contribution to the wider running of the u3a.

She will be a hard act to follow, but someone out there will be able to. Just stick your hand up and we can have a chat about the role and how to move forward. For more information please go to Treasurers Job Role
