1) MONTHLY MEETING – Groups Open Meeting

1) MONTHLY MEETING : Thursday 12 September at 2pm


Our annual Open Meeting is taking place this year on Thursday 12th September. This is the time for all Groups to show off their achievements of the past year to existing and potential members. All groups need to be present to show how many areas of activity Sully U3A covers.

Please will ALL group Conveners who have not yet done so, contact me (preferably by email) ASAP to say whether their group will be attending or not. Any group member/s can hold the fort on the day.
Also what (if any) wall space, socket points or anything else they require. Tables to be set up by 1.30pm on the day.

Please encourage your friends and colleagues to come along on the day and get inspired to join the movement. Also, if anyone has an idea for a new group please email me as or slide a paper note (with my name on it) under the Old School office door. Any new ideas are gratefully received and considered. Hoping to see you all on the 12th September.

Correct Procedures – room rental and timing

At the August meeting, members were reminded that payment for room rental must be in

CASH ONLY. On no account can a personal cheque or a bank draft be accepted - this is a direct ruling from the Charity Commission and U3A National.

Also, members were reminded that you cannot use a room in the Old School before or after your booking time. Should you wish to book for more time to set up or clear away, please check the on - line booking system. The CCTV system within the Old School carefully records movement within the building. Convenors must ensure that the use of a room tallies with booking times, otherwise excess charges will be laid.

This from Janet Pryce-Jones, Membership Secretary

All members of Sully U3A are automatically sent a copy of TAM.

I have just sent the address list for the September issue, but the Committee wonders if everyone wants to receive a copy. This is in view of the postage cost, and saving on potential recycling if you never glance at it!

If you do not feel that you need an individual copy, could you please let me know at so that your name can be taken off the list.

I can only send in changes at specific times, but any time you decide that you want to stop receiving it, I can delete your name from the next list to be sent.

Thank you
Janet Pryce-Jones, Membership Secretary
