 Are you able to help the u3a?

Could you help with some of the tasks that are essential if we are to continue offering all that members have come to expect. This is an excellent way to meet new people and although busy at the time, are usually enjoyable.

The following activities need volunteers. Please let us know if you would like more information by contacting our Chairman at or Melanie at .

More hands reduce the load and some posts must be filled.
