  • New Thursday meeting format. The meeting on 14th March was the first of the new format Thursday meetings. These meetings will focus on the activites of Chester U3A Groups and members (as opposed to the Tuesday meetings which usual have an external speaker). This "Pot Pourri" meeting (the name being given to mutli-topic meetings) included displays from a number of groups looking for new members and six very informative presentations from members. Audience feedback on the new format was very encouraging.
