Welcome to Carmarthen U3A

30th September meeting update
As below but given the continuing concerns over Covid the meeting will be an even more limited affair with the seating spaced out, no refreshments before or after and completed within an hour. To improve ventilation outside doors will be left open so it might be an idea to bring some woollies.
From 1.30 David will be meeting and greeting at the entrance with a thermometer ‘gun’ to check temperatures. Joan and Eric will be signing on membership and taking fees by cheque or cash.
At 2.00 David as Chair will provide a briefing with what the committee has been up to since the AGM in June, Ann as Secretary and Eric as Treasurer will give overviews from their perspectives. David will then give opportunity to Group Leaders present to outline their intentions for their Group and thereafter those present can raise any issues for clarification (as far as is possible to give any!!).
The Return of the monthly meeting
The first monthly meeting since the various Covid-19 restrictions for all members and those who would wish to join will be held at the usual venue – the Bowling Club, St Peters Street, Carmarthen, SA31 !LN at 2.00 pm on Thursday 30th September.
Unlike previous meetings there will be no presentation but the opportunity to meet the new committee and discuss the U3A’s future. The reduced subs of £12 will be collected for the new year (along with £3.10 for the TAM magazine if required) and for those wishing to enjoy the Christmas lunch at the Falcon Hotel on Thursday, 9th December please bring along £10 deposit.

University of the Third Age?

For those unaware of what this and all U3As are, they are part of a nationwide network of volunteer learning groups aimed at encouraging people to share their knowledge, skills and interests in a friendly environment. There are no upper or lower age limits but U3As are for people in their ‘third age’ – retired or semi-retired.

No formal qualifications are required to join and none are given. It’s not an academic institution which awards degrees. The term ‘University’ in the title is used in its original sense (i.e. groups of people wishing to study or discuss a subject). The U3A movement in the UK is supported by its national umbrella body, the Third Age Trust.

Here at the Carmarthen U3A we would love to hear from members – new and existing – who have a particular interest and would like to lead a group around that topic. So give us a try, meet new people, engage with new activities and be part of a national movement committed to enriching the lives of its members.
