November Monthly Meeting, Monday 1 November

2.00pm in Greenhills Community Centre


Things aren’t quite back to normal so we are asking you not to arrive before 1.45 so that we have time to get set up. A few COVID related formalities to be observed:

 you are asked to complete the personal risk assessment checklist  enclosed in last month’s Newsletter

 you should carry your membership card with you at any u3a event (remember that you are kindly requested to provide two emergency contacts on the reverse)  

 you won’t be asked to sign in – we’ll put a tick against your name from our membership lists and you will be given your membership card if you haven’t already collected it

 you can collect membership cards for your friends or fellow group members at sign in

 new members and renewing members will sign in at a separate table.

Our speaker for this event will be our own Lesley McIlhagger who will introduce us to the mystery surrounding the whereabouts of the remains of Oliver Cromwell.  To help in serving tea/coffee you are kindly requested to bring along your own cup – but probably not your best china!

Christmas lunch, Monday 6 December in the Holiday Inn

You still have time to sign up for this and you are invited to bring along a non-member friend if you choose.  I would remind you that the cost is £20 and can confirm that we will be able to run our raffle – so feel free to bring  along a prize if you wish to donate and cash to purchase tickets.  If you aren’t coming to the monthly meeting but want to sign up for the lunch please contact Joan Hodge at u3aek.vicechair@gmail.com

New project

As usual we will have updates on any new or restarting activities.  One potential new activity - we have been approached by Kirktonholme Childcare to participate in some activities such as gardening, baking and play with small groups of their pre-school children. Nursery school staff will always be present and it is unlikely that you would require PDG approval.  Wherever possible activities will take place outdoors.  If you think that this intergenerational project is something you might like to get involved in please contact Lesley McIlhagger (u3aek.programmes@gmail.com)


I look forward to seeing lots of you on Monday 1 November.
