meetings open for registration at 2:00 pm (in the room adjoining the main hall
at Highfield, in the church hall to the right-hand side of the lobby at
Marlborough Road). The meetings start at 2:30pm when we sit down for
announcements followed by a talk of about 45 minutes by a Guest Speaker. At
Marlborough Road, tea and coffee are served in the church hall after the talk.
If you could help, please contact our Refreshments Coordinator, Charlotte Thorp, who organises the refreshments rota.
At each venue, in
the registration area, there are stalls with information about Groups, Trips,
Events and U3A notices as well as a free Bookstall. At Marlborough Rd the
church has a T-Loop system for those who use hearing aids.
Talks are organised by the Speaker Secretary, John Johnson, who would welcome suggestions for future speakers - including U3A members who would be interested in giving a talk on their 'specialist subject'. Please give feedback after each talk by placing a token in one of the 'ballot' boxes and writing your thoughts in the comments book provided at each meeting - this is important for compiling a list of recommended speakers for the Herts Network of U3As.
Please remember to
bring your membership card with you to the meetings as it saves time at registration. Also, please fill in the reverse with your Emergency Contact and Medical/Allergy details as these could prove useful to a paramedic called to
an accident or a person taken ill. For the same reasons,
please carry your card when attending every U3A activity
