The Committee needs You

We need more volunteers to serve on the committee, without new members joining the committee this U3A could close!

You are very welcome to join us at our next committee meeting to see what we do, which will take place on Friday, 12 January at Agbrigg Community Centre at 10am.

AGM Speaker

Following the AGM Alun Pugh gave a talk entitled 'Teaching, an interruption to my holidays!' He shared a series of amusing anecdotes about his time as a PE teacher in Leeds. He included some stories his father, also a teacher, had told him about his experiences. It was a reminder of how much the teaching environment has changed and brought back mixed memories of our own school days.


The Coffee Mornings are held at West Yorkshire Sports Club, off Walton Lane, Sandal, on the third Friday of the month, Coffee Served from 10:00am speaker at 10:30.

No Coffee Morning in December, the next is:

Friday 19th January 2018. Coffee/tea from 10a.m.Speaker 10.30a.m. The speaker will be Sheila Dixon who will speak about 'Life on the Titanic' with local references.

We sell donated DVDs as well as second hand books at coffee mornings. Besides being a service for our members these sales offset some of the cost of hiring the room for the coffee mornings. Your donations will be gratefully received.


Will members kindly note that it is their responsibility to inform their Group Leader if they are not able to attend 3 consecutive group meetings. If there is a waiting list for the group the Group Leader can take the decision that the member no longer wishes to remain in that group and pass the place on to another applicant. Elaine Machell
