Trustee for Wales

Colin Luker - Wales Trustee

Welcome to all members of the u3a in Wales,

A number of you joined my Zoom call on 30th May.
One of the matters that was raised is a request to get a monthly or at the very least a quarterly statement of accounts from the Third Age Trust. I have requested this and it will be discussed on the 19th June Board meeting. Currently there is a summary newsletter but the feeling is that a more detailed statement is required.

The idea to have an annual Wales u3a day / event was also discussed. Views were split about holding such an event. In previous years it has been a one day themed get together in Llandindod Wells. What do others think about that & would you travel to such an event?

If you would like me to speak to your Group or Network then let me know. In the meantime please email / telephone me with any subjects you would like me to raise. or 07866502400
