*Our U3A year has four 8-week terms. This was chosen to prevent burn-out amongst our volunteers and enable everyone time to schedule holidays without disrupting U3A activities. If meeting outside these dates, please notify secretary in writing in advance especially if it needs to be announced in previous term's newsletter.
