FROM THE CHAIRMAN

Dear Members,

Sunflowers What a great idea on someone’s part! I guess it’s a farmer, the other side of Bury St Edmunds, diversifying, developing alternative income streams, but it made for a fascinating visit to somewhere new and an opportunity for families to get out and do something different. I hope the Sunflowers are a symbol of a brightening world and new opportunities for us to spend time in the company of others.
Of course, the pandemic is not over and, as I write, we are waiting with bated breath to see if our plans for September’s meetings will come to fruition.

Our many ACTIVITY GROUPS are setting out their plans and most are explained in this newsletter. Again, do keep your eye on the website for details. There are some changes to our groups: some new ones are starting, some are not continuing for the time being. Others have new Group Co-ordinators or new venues. My thanks to all the officers and members who have been planning and preparing so that we can make a good start to the new U3A year.
Please may I ask that if you have not yet renewed your membership, you do so very soon? The application form is on the website; just print it off, fill it in and return it to the Membership Secretary together with your cheque. The cost is just £10.00 for the year. You can now pay online if you wish, instead of writing a cheque.

One other development: the Executive Committee has decided to standardise the charge for each Interest Group at £1.50, regardless of venue. Speaker Meetings will continue to be free. There will be no charge for tea or coffee at any venue.

Best wishes
Tim Young
Chairman
