Monthly Meeting Report for August 2019

The Chairman, Graham Jermyn welcomed over 100 people to the August Meeting including 5 new members and 5 visitors.

Graham made reference to the request for volunteers to come forward that had been circulated to all members in a variety of ways. A few people had come forward and there would be a meeting in the Quaker Meeting Rooms at 12 after the monthly meeting to agree roles and tasks. Anyone else interested in helping our U3A was welcome to come along.

A new Beccles U3A tri-fold leaflet has been printed and is available for members to take for their own benefit or to give to people that they know who they feel may benefit from making new friends and learning new things.

Irene has arranged the following new trips for the next couple of months as follows:

  • 1st September - Kirstead Hall £17 per person - car share
  • 18th September - Heath Farmhouse £15 per person - car share
  • 24th September - St Peter’s Hall and Brewery £18 per person - car share
  • 12th November - Butley Priory, Woodbridge - approx £35 per person including coach

Many of these venues are not generally open to the public so this is an opportunity to visit some where that you may not have been before.
