The Committee is particularly grateful to Caroline Bagshaw whose management of the event was, as ever, top-class. 55 people have signed up since the beginning of November, which is great news. We need to keep on attracting new members if our U3A is to continue to flourish. 08.11.19

Third Age Trust Annual Report 2018-19
The Third Age Trust has published its Annual Report for 2018-19 and can be viewed in full on the website, provided you have registered. However, as it runs to over 40 pages, you may prefer to view a two-page summary which focuses on some key numbers and on plans for the future, rather than on achievements over the last year or so. You can read my 2018 - 2019 report Summary here.

Website Team
Our team has tidied up the website to make it more Smart Phone and Tablet friendly. We are also here to help everyone keep their Web Pages up to date. We recognise that, apart from basic changes to the text, this Website is far from easy to edit! If you require assistance or advice you can contact the Website Team
