The focus of the magazine is very much on our groups. There are photos of what they have been doing and also a 'dates for your diay' section where you can publicise any forthcoming activities that might interest our wider membership. Every month we turn the spotlight on one group and we are pleased to say that we have conveners who have volunteered for the next few issues. Another regular feature is ‘A day in the life of a Convenor’.

Our anniversary party in July 2017 was a huge success as was our Open Day in October 2018 and our Christmas party in December 2018. These events showcased the variety of activities and talents in our U3A, and we want the magazine to have the same friendly, community feel. We hope that you enjoy reading this and every month's issue; it shows many of the good things happening in Chepstow U3A.

Please contribute to the magazine. We’d be delighted to have more groups and conveners for the spotlight feature and we also want to know what your group has been doing. E-mail us at the magazine email address below; it’s your chance to showcase your group and even attract a few new members!
