|Dates for your Diary|
|Thu Sep 27th||Social||We are postponing the celebrations for our 15th anniversary until the new year and relocating it to the Heath Community Centre. |
We have had a good response from groups wanting to contribute and Wilfred House is too small to get everyone accommodated.
Thank you all for your support and ideas. We hope that with the extra time for preparation and the additional space in the refurbished Heath Community Centre we can put on an event of note.
We will set the new date when the bookings are made and advise you in good time.

|Sat Oct 6th||Recorders||
Unbelievably, the time has come once again to open booking for the Uttoxeter U3A Recorder Playing Day on October 6th 2018.
As you will see, we have invited a different tutor this year. Ruth is someone that several of us have played with in previous years. We have enjoyed her company and her leadership and are very pleased that she has accepted our invitation. I hope she will bring music from various different publishers and arrangers so that you might learn more about the broad variety of music available to us as recorder players.
We have several new members of our own group here in Uttoxeter who hope to join us on October 6th, and I have received enquiries from several people who’ve come on previous occasions already. Remember that last year, our second Playing Day, we were fully booked within 2 weeks of opening booking. The limit of 50 places still applies. We will maintain a waiting list of people who are initially unlucky and provided there is somebody who can step into the breach we will refund money to anyone who books early and is subsequently unable to come.
If you need a reminder of where to send your cheque (payable to “Uttoxeter & District U3A” please email me by clicking on my name Brenda Welch and I’ll let you have my address.
I look forward to seeing you all again soon.
