Happy New Year wishes to you.

If you are visiting our Croydon U3A site for the first time, or as someone considering joining, please be assured that there are lots of different opportunities in which to Learn, Laugh and Live.

New members always bring much experience and expertise to the organisation to enhance and develop it. If an Interest Group you are looking for isn't there, it's time to talk to us. We will help you find some like-minded members to form a new group. We can help with start up costs, venue hire, advice and support and the National Office has a number of subject advisers. U3As are run by the members for the members. There is no set list of groups - it's whatever the members want for themselves. Come along, be radical in retirement.

You are welcome to attend one of our General Monthly Meetings as a visitor before you take the plunge and sign up.

On a special note if there is anyone (new member or established) who has expertise as a webmaster, IT consultant, mailchimp guru, social media mogul, we need you.

Two Interest Groups - Wine Appreciation and Chair Yoga - were filmed during their recent meetings. The film footage, once edited, will create Youtube films to promote the U3A. Once the editing is completed I will publish the link so you can see the action.

Best Wishes to all
