Groups Wish List


From the Chairman

All the Christmas decorations are now back in the loft, so I guess the Christmas festivities are officially over. It’s time to wish all our members a very happy, healthy and enjoyable New Year. I hope you all enjoyed the festivities over Christmas and started the New Year full of resolutions, or at least good intentions….

Over the next few months, your committee will be looking at various options to safeguard and improve our future, especially as our membership numbers continue to rise. One of the items on the “To Do” list in these first months is to start looking for a keen volunteer to take over from Jan Kidman, who leaves the post of Groups Co-ordinator, at the May AGM, after 6 years of excellent work. Do please talk to Jan or myself if you are at all interested and find out more about what the role involves….no commitment at this stage!

Cirencester U3A continues with the first General meeting on January 15th, as usual, at the Ashcroft Centre starting at 2.30pm, and we start the year with the return of the excellent Dr Tim Brain talking about George Frederick Handel.

The fantastic variety of groups and activities have restarted, so make the most of them through the year. If your particular interest isn’t yet covered, remember it is quite easy to start a new group.

Talking of groups, I’d like to say a big thank you to those group members who braved the stage for our Christmas Showcase, a lovely hour of entertainment and a demonstration of the skill and fun to be found in our groups - from poetry reading (how do people learn such long poems by heart?) to ukuleles, from play reading to the Singing for Fun choir, all interspersed with readings from the Writing for Fun group. It all went really well, all brilliantly organised and directed on the day by Jan Kidman.

National Office have been very quiet over the holiday period, as to be expected at this time of year, so nothing to report on that front, but I am sure that will change as the new year gathers momentum and the emails and paperwork from them increase and keep the committee on their toes.

I look forward to our next committee meeting later in January, which reminds me, I must get on with putting the agenda together! Enjoy 2019
