February News

Unfortunately I was unable to attend this months meeting so can give no report. I hope those that did go enjoyed it although a little bird told me the heating wasn't working very well, not good on such a cold day.


The star Raffle prize this month was a £50 voucher



Notice is hereby given that we shall be holding an EXTRAORDINARY GENERAL MEETING immediately after our normal members meeting on Wednesday the 4th April 2018 at 3.45pm.

The purpose of that meeting is to vote for the adoption of a new object clause for our constitution, which The Third Age Trust are expecting all U3A's to embrace.

The proposed clause reads as follows:-

"The advancement of education and, in particular, the education of older people and those who are retired from full time work by all means, including associated activities conducive to learning and personal development"

Hopefully the matter can be concluded fairly quickly so that we can still be away by 4pm.

The Link attachment is part of the script that we have received which provides the rationale behind the requirement.



266 Tiny hats and 3 blankets knitted by our members and friends for the charity Cherished Gowns for Angel Babies, which uses donated wedding dresses and knitted and crocheted hats, blankets and bootees to provide outfits for stillborn babies, full term and premature, to wear for their final goodbye.
Many thanks to all our knitters for their kindness. Patterns are available and details of sizes and colours required for those who may wish to continue. Also the address of the charity if you wish to become a volunteer knitter or seamstress. If you would like to help us financially with the cost of sending the items in the future that would also be a great help.
