Dear Members,
I hope the recent spring weather gave you a short respite from the cold rainy days of winter and that you are enjoying your U3A activities.

I would love to hear from anyone who would like to tell me how the membership of this wonderful organisation has affected their lives. I woke up one January morning in 2008 and attended the launch meeting of a new U3A in my area - and changed my life completely! I've made new friends, met inspirational people and attempted things I never expected to do. How about you?

Our newsflash is to give you some brief updates on activities around the regional. The next newsletter will be on the regional website by late March, early April.
Until then, keep an eye on the regional website for details.
best wishes
Gill Russell
Regional Trustee
