GROUP NEWS

Group Leaders Meeting 30th May 2019.

Many of our hard working group leaders took time out for this important meeting.
During the last year there has been much new legislation affecting all U3As which had to be passed on to group leaders.
We had Financial, Data Protection, Beacon, Equality and Inclusion, Safeguarding and Insurance presentations. So much had changed that it was necessary to issue new Handbooks to the group leaders.
The Littlebury hotel provided an excellent afternoon tea which was enjoyed by all.
