Doreen’s words to me today - ‘Barbara I wish I could still play!
I can still run but just can’t see the shuttle very well!’

For those members with an Amazon Account guidance from Steve Powney on how to obtain an Amazon Smile donation towards our U3A Funds

We are now set up on AmazonSmile for our members, or anyone else, to support us by using smile there is a requirement to log into a different Amazon site than the standard amazon.co.uk.

You can do this by logging on to Amazon smile.and searching for Biddulph U3A as the charity to donate to.

We will only get donations if eligible orders, which appear to be most things, are ordered via smile and not the standard site. Once smile is up and running if you do log on to the standard site you usually get a message to tell you the item you are ordering is available on smile and giving you the option to login to smile to qualify for the donation.
(AS of August 2021 this has generated £21.45 towards our u3a funds - Every little helps)

A U3A Evening Out at Reubens

24 Members and friends enjoyed a lovely meal at the town's newest eating establishment. The restaurant has been tastefully refurbished creating a desirable and comfortable place to eat out locally. Everyone agreed that the food was excellent and served by attentive, friendly and efficient staff so, all in all, a good night out was had by all.
