As you are probably aware we have not yet found a new Treasurer to manage the finances of our U3A and be part of the Committee. Without a Treasurer we are finding it extremely difficult to manage the financial affairs of our U3A. As we begin to reopen, the system may become unmanageable. So it is absolutely vital that we appoint the right person to this post as soon as possible.

If you have a background or experience in finance and or accounting and would like to be part of a group of Trustees that care about our U3A and would like to rise to the challenge, please, in the first instance, contact a member of Committee, in confidence, to informally express an interest and to discuss the opportunity further. This initial expression of interest to gain more information, will NOT commit you in any way.

Thank you.

Sunday walkers – local

We had to postpone our walk in West Kirby due to the weather forecast.
Even though it forecast snow 20 of us completed just under 5 miles taking in the canal, Cheshire lines and local fields.

We arrived at Bernie’s just as the snow was getting heavier.
It was great to finish the walk with a cooked breakfast in good company.
We are walking in Aughton next week and getting the 9.50 Ormskirk train . I will post full details later in the week. John and I are hoping to go to Bernie’s at 9 next Sunday and have breakfast before we get the train.  Anyone can join us 🙂

On a morning that was remarkably bright and sunny for the time of the year, 21 members decamped at Hall Road station where they were joined by 4 other members and Keith – a guest labradoodle guide possessing extensive knowledge of the intended route of the day’s walk.

After completing the usual preliminaries, the group set off for the first port of call at the Key Park. Here Frank and David provided background information as to how it was that this somewhat unique resource came into being for the benefit of the local residents, and how its facilities were safeguarded from excessive use.
