Groups Wish List


From the Chairman

The festive season is upon us once again and I know that many Groups are organising their own Christmas events. I have had the pleasure to attend two very different but equally enjoyable ones (Bridge and Walking groups) so I am now getting into the Christmas spirit and looking forward to entertaining my family at home over the Christmas period.

But I am also hearing of many examples where individuals will not be able to enjoy Christmas so much, either because they will be on their own, they may be recently bereaved, or because loved ones are ill, or indeed because they are ill themselves. So, also bear a thought for those people who won’t be so lucky this year.

As part of Cirencester U3A Christmas we have the Cirencester Parish Handbell Ringers to entertain us at the next General Meeting on the 17th December. I look forward to seeing many of you there to join in with the singing. There is a full and very varied programme of speakers already booked for the meetings throughout 2020.

As the year 2019 moves towards its end I realise that I have reached the halfway point of my tenure as Chairman (where did the last 18 months go to?), so as a new year beckons and the second half kicks off, I will have a quick look back but more importantly look ahead to the challenges and actions needed to complete our strategic plan. Along the way I hope there will also be a lot of fun, but in the meantime, we have our last committee meeting of the year on the 11th, and any decisions coming from this meeting will also be reported in the January edition of this newsletter.

I would like to end by thanking all our members, group leaders and other volunteers for making 2019 so successful and enjoyable and wish you all a very Happy Christmas, but I would also like to offer my best wishes to those who will find this season less enjoyable for whatever reason.

Tony Natt
