Group Leader's Thank You Tea
Warden Hill Community Centre 12 September 2019

Thank you to all those group leaders and deputies who attended and also to the Committee Members and hospitality ladies, your help was very welcome and invaluable.

In all, 68 leaders were invited to attend over 2 sessions and 33 accepted. Thank you to those who sent apologies.

Feedback forms were received from everyone and overall, comments were very positive.

As a result of the event, Groups Liaison Services has created several more subject posters for the boards at the monthly meetings, and several leaders have promised to write about their groups for inclusion in ‘In Touch’ magazine (please send your text to the editor). Other leaders have indicated that they would like to promote their groups at our monthly meetings.

Many groups are looking for new members so if you are thinking about trying out new subjects please give these consideration. Details will be on the monthly meeting boards and the website. (

I think most considered this an enjoyable event with lots of conversation and information gathering.

2019 Study and Activity Brochure

Thank you to all group leaders who have worked with Gina on updating this brochure. Copies will be sent to all new members to help them choose groups they are interested in. It can be provided to existing members on request but can also be viewed at the GLS table at the monthly meetings or online via our U3A website.

Monthly Information Boards

If you have any information about your group and you wish to advertise on the monthly meeting notice boards, please email your details to Hilary or Gina who will be happy to do this for you. Alternatively, see us at the GLS table on a monthly meeting day.

If you feel you would like to get more involved in your Luton U3A there are tasks you can volunteer to help with. Please do come forward. It doesn't matter how much time you have, a small or large amount of time is very welcomed and rewarding. If you speak to Hilary or Gina we can point you in the right direction.
