Charity No. 1152823
Five Years on learning of U3A and two years on as Chairman, I regularly give thanks for hearing of this wonderful organisation. It has allowed me to feel included and hopefully useful by being involved in activities and interests I hadn’t previously considered. For me it has been Computer problem solving (my own), Bridge and succumb to its addictiveness. I have marvelled at the opportunity to taste the History of Ancient Greece and currently Roman History. Who would have thought it! All through and thanks to the medium of the U3A ethos and philosophy! I have tasted the Poetry Readings, Classical Music Sessions and also visited the Local History Group.
In being involved and mixing with the membership I have met many people and developed many friendships, for which I say many thanks to BNB U3A.
My efforts on going from now, is to hopefully continue to maintain my interests, offer to help where I can and promote U3A to those who still remark “ U3A - what’s that then? “
I am sure the experience has not been unique to me and many of us can tell a similar tale.
What I would ask is for those who can, why not think of offering to help us maintain and promote our Branch and help where you can?
To all the Group Coordinators, Committee Members and everyone who helps in doing what we do, Thanks a Million. Brian Gibbs.
