Now to the AGM on the 26th – this is the time of year when some of our committee members finish their periods of service/ allocated time. Estelle, our membership secretary is standing down after ten years in the post – she will be sorely missed. Peter Welch is standing down as treasurer where he has managed to keep our finances in sound order. The third member of the committee leaving us this year is Sue Farrell who has managed our website through a period of change and also has sent out the monthly newsletters to you all. As you all know our committee members are all volunteers and we thank all three for the time they have given up fulfilling their roles on the committee.
The AGM provides an opportunity to appoint new members to the three roles, the presentation of the annual accounts and the opportunity for you to raise any issues important for the smooth running of our group. A reflection of the latter is that we have been able to reduce the membership fees for the next year.
It is also a time for us all to celebrate the ten years that Edenbridge u3a has been running.
I hope that we will be able to move through the agenda quite quickly so that we can listen to Paul Dickinson’s talk on Arundel Castle.
Finally a reminder – it is time to renew your membership for the next year. With everything else going up in price your new membership represents extremely good value at the new lower rate.
