Ravenshead

Find your group activity below

Ravenshead U3A started just over 5 years ago and has been relatively successful with over 40 activity groups offering a wide range of interest and social activities. None of this would have been possible without the efforts of our group leaders and committee members who volunteer their time to ensure that planning and organising is done effectively.

At our next Annual General Meeting in June, Maria our business secretary will have completed her 3 years as business secretary. To ensure a smooth continuity of managing our U3A, we are seeking a replacement for that role with the intention that they become familiar with the role prior to the election of officers.

If you think you have experience which is appropriate to this role, please contact Maria or any member of the executive committee, with a view to hearing more of the roles involved in managing our U3A.

You are welcome to attend our committee meetings to listen to our discussions etc.
