June 2015 Newsletter – A Message from our new Chair, Sue Blackley

SueDear Members,

I feel privileged to have the opportunity to chair Beeston U3A although I know my predecessors will be hard acts to follow. I was involved in education all my working life and I am committed to lifelong learning. U3A, I feel, is the perfect vehicle for this.

I think we have a vibrant and exciting U3A in Beeston with a very hard working committee and fantastic group leaders and I look forward to seeing it develop further over the next year. I would like to see more new groups, more events and members taking part in Shared Learning Projects. Hopefully we can also work more closely with the U3A’s in our cluster group and become more aware of events regionally and nationally.

Do let the committee know if you have any ideas/ comments to make and please use our suggestion box. Come and talk to us at open meetings and let us know your views.

This is your U3A and your opinions count.

We want our U3A to be one of the best so here’s to onward and upward as the membership grows and we continue to go from strength to strength.

Sue Blackley
