The full timetable, the Town Hall room timetable and the Zoom timetable are available in the Office and on our website.
Monday Morning Talk
We are delighted to welcome our own Mickey Yudkin, a teacher of Psychoanalytic Theory. Mickey will be introducing us to A Psychological and Literary Exploration of Love.
I think a member of U3A dropped their keys in the side car park. If they are yours please contact Reception at the Town Hall. Kind regards, Marian
An Essential Reminder
If you want to place any contribution at all in the Update, you really must send it to Alan Milward. Alan cannot take over from Amalia if he does not receive the contributions. Until now, we have been forwarding items to each other but inevitably there have been some errors as a result. Please note the deadline for receipt of contributions is midday on Thursdays.
The Common Room
From Valerie Wilson Trower
Please do not attach anything to the newly painted Common Room walls. We are in the process of developing a picture wall which will be installed in a few weeks’ time.
The whiteboard and the pinboard are now installed, please use these. Blu-tak should not be used as it marks surfaces. Any messages can be written on the whiteboard using a whiteboard pen available from the Office.
Thank you, Valerie
Third Age Matters Magazine
Sue Kwok has now taken over the ordering of the magazine. If your household is receiving more copies than they have ordered, or not receiving the copies they have requested, please get in touch with Sue.
