Hello Everyone, I hope you are all keeping well and have taken the opportunity to enjoy the summer weather. The Day Trip to Herne Bay and Whitstable was great, the weather was just right, not too hot to be walking along Herne Bay seafront and about the town or Whitstable town. We all arrived home safe and sound, thank you Sandra for organising the Summer trips at such a good price.

The next outing as I am writing this, is to see “Grease” and I feel sure everyone will have a great time. Again, thank you Rosemary for giving our members the opportunity to see these great West End productions.

Although this is a combined Newsletter for July/August due to Gateway closure for the summer holidays, we will still be having our monthly meeting in August and annual Celebration at the September meeting this year. Please start booking your places for the Celebration as soon as possible so that there is no last minute rush. Pam Quilter is ready and waiting for you. Booking forms are in the newsletter.

A reminder that Membership Renewal Is £20 this year. In order to help Mary Scillitoe our Membership Secretary please do not leave renewals until the last moment. As you can imagine Mary has hundreds to get through which she heroically manages on her own each year. Renewal forms are in the Newsletter. Also please don’t forget your “Gift Aid” forms to be submitted to Paul Heasmer.

A further reminder to let you all know that your committee and group leaders will all be putting in their best efforts to ensure that Thurrock U3A continues to provide the many and various group activities over the summer months. These volunteers are the bedrock of our society and thank you all so much for the time that you give so generously to make things a success.

This month’s speaker is: Roger Passfield – Neighbourhood Watch.
