Brian Hinners has previously served three years as Chairman and has agreed to serve another year as Interim Chairman until a replacement is found.

The role of Business Secretary has been divided amongst current Committee members for the time being.

We need a Social Team Representative in order to reintroduce a social events programme. The organisation of social events is actually handled by a team of volunteer members assembled for each occasion but it is essential that there is a representative on the Committee in order to manage and coordinate all Soar Valley u3a activities. The Committee meets six times a year.

Minutes of Committee meetings may be obtained from the Minutes Secretary Sue Miles



Information about Meetings, Outings, Social, and Other Events will be listed on, and linked from, the Events page.
