General notice to members
Hinckley U3A celebrated its 25th anniversary on 1st March this year.

To celebrate this milestone we are planning a special afternoon on Tuesday 18th June. We'll be entertained by Fools' Gold acoustic duo and enjoy a delicious strawberry cream tea. As if that's enough sweet deliciousness, there will also be cakes baked by a local bakery.

Carla, one of the original founding members, will say a few words, as will our chairman John. Hinckley's mayor, Linda Hodgeson, will also celebrate and say a few words.

Just come along to the Mary Forryan Centre in Hinckley to celebrate!
