Committee Role and Training Opportunity

In May 2024 our current Secretary, Linda Simms, will come to the end of her term of office having held the role for six years.  This means we are now actively seeking someone who would like to take on this valuable role.

Linda now only has two months in her role and would welcome any member who would like to shadow her during that time.  We are quite happy to split Linda’s role into two distinct parts if it helps, so that can be shared by two members.

Firstly we will need a Minutes Secretary to take down the confidential minutes of our Committee Meetings and our Group Leaders’ Meetings.  There are ten Committee meeting a year and some three group Leader Meetings.  An ability to use shorthand is a great advantage here, but it should not preclude anyone from taking on the role.  Secondly we will need an Admin Secretary who will deal with the forms and the procedures of the u3a Trust.

If you think either of these positions would interest you please contact Linda or Jane on a Tuesday morning for more details or email us at enquiries@mandlu3a.org.uk

🌟🌟 In addition – should you fancy joining us on the Committee in another role, the nomination papers for Committee places will be available on our Admin page very soon. Please give some serious thought as to how you can support our u3a.

Flicks and Friends

Join us on Tuesday 20th February at the Plaza for a showing of a 2005 crime thriller.

When an UN interpreter (Nicole Kidmaan) overhears an assassination plot, she falls in danger and is protected by a federal agent (Sean Penn). But the more he knows about her the more suspicious he becomes; is she a victim or a suspect?

Woodlands Charity

Today I received an email from Paula Parle, one of the fundraisers at Woodlands Trust, thanking us for the collection we made to the Trust following our Christmas Concert.

Paula and the Concert organisers would like to extend our thanks to you, our members, for the generosity you showed in raising £494.61 for the hospice.

Thank you one and all


Flicks and Friends

Join us for our monthly Age Concern Flicks and Friends show at the Plaza Cinema in Crosby.   The film is based upon the true story of British humanitarian Sir Nicholas Winton as he looks back on his past efforts to help groups of Jewish children in German occupied Czechoslovakia to hide and flee in 1938-39 just before the beginning of World War II.   Click on the poster for details.
