and finally …

A reminder of our vacancies –  Treasurer, Treasurer’s ‘helpers’ (on a weekly rota)  (we must get a better title this is too reminiscent of Santa’s helpers)   and photocopying help – again on a rota. 

The latter of these – photocopying –  was filled today after notices – thank you very much to our volunteer –  and apologies but  I don’t know your name – yet. Please could members seriously consider whether they can take up the position of Treasurer or Treasures helper(s) as these are absolutely vital for the ongoing operation of our U3A

Thank you all and have a great week
