Special General Meeting

Constitution Amendment
The Committee has had feedback from The Charity Commission on the New Constitution (as approved by U3A National Office) , and need to make minor wording changes to the ‘winding-up’ section. This is a first for the U3A National Office, and not questioned before. We therefore are calling a Special General Meeting at the November Monthly Meeting to approve this wording change. We ask for all to attend who can as we must be quorate to pass this wording amendment to the Constitution. Thank you all for your understanding in this.
The Committee.

Free Library Service

We have been contacted by the Warwickshire Library and Information Service concerning their Home Delivery Service which is a free library service for those who are unable to visit their local or mobile library due to ill health and infirmity.

Volunteers call every four weeks with a selection of books based on customer preferences and they can stay and have a little chat with them about books and interests (as well as a lot of other things probably).
There is a link to a promotional flyer for further information and we will be having some leaflets made available at our monthly meeting.
It is a worthy and useful service and I urge those who have trouble getting to the library regularly to contact them on
01926 851031 or online at Library Website or email Library Email

Please Note: This service is for Warwickshire residents only. If you are from another county, then you will probably find that your own county provides a similar service.
