Welcome to Newport U3A's website
Just to remind you, our first Monthly Meeting of 2013 will be held on Thursday 10 January, and the speaker will be our own Mick Bailey, who will be talking about The Garden Bird Watch. You probably know that Mick is Ambassador for the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO), so it should be a very interesting presentation.
At the end of January we have one of our rare Convenors Meetings. If any Convenors are unable to attend, please send a deputy.
Also looming large is Founders' Day on 28 February. We decided a few years ago not to hold these every year, but to keep them for "special occasions". Well, 2013 is one of those: Newport U3A is 20 years old this year! More information will be forthcoming in due course - watch this space - in the meantime, tickets are available now from Barbara or Tony Phillips, and will also be available on the door.
The AGM is scheduled for 25 April, and we will be looking for at least two new Committee Members. I shall not be standing again as Chair (still voiceless since the beginning of October!) so will be stepping down from the Committee, and we need to replace Clive Hard, who resigned earlier in the year. Please give some thought to joining the Committee – think of it as a way of giving something back in exchange for all the hours of fun and entertainment (OK, and homework!) you have had. Or, possibly, a way to make those improvements you can see are needed ... !!
Best wishes for 2013,
