Annual NWR Conference and AGM 15th June 2022, Preston
We hope that you can join us at our first 'face to face' event since February 2020. It's being held at the Exchange in Preston because so many members appreciated the venue in 2019 when we held our AGM there.
The venue is directly opposite Preston mainline station. If driving to the venue, parking is a short walk from the venue. All NWR u3a members are welcome to attend.
Programme details can be found here: Programme June 2022
We are delighted to welcome Liz Thackray, Chair of Third Age Trust to speak to us in the afternoon. In the morning we welcome Dave Carlos from the Lancashire Constabulary's Cyber Volunteer Team. There will be an opportunity to talk to fellow members in the workshop, led by Neil Stevenson, our Regional Trustee. The workshop is about any type of meeting, including Speaker and Interest Groups.
