We receive comments from members that they don’t know about some of the Study Days and events that are available.  We advertise them on the notice board at the General Meetings and forward them to Group Convenors hoping they will forward to their members, we have also started asking the Chairman to include them in his Monthly ebulletin.

These events are arranged either by Thames Valley Network or Herts Network, to which our U3a is affiliated to. We send out as many information sheets possible without overloading you with emails.  Please encourage your members to look on line for details as the popular ones get sold out very very quickly.


Handling Group Funds

The normal method of handling money for the U3A.

If your trips involve people paying on the day you probably do not need to collect money in before hand as they can pay their own fees.

If you need to collect money ahead of time for the trips and you have to pay a certain fee regardless of how many come on the trip, you should collect the money ahead of time and ideally send the money to John Anderson, Treasurer, either by bank transfer or by posting the cheques. This is really important if you have to pay for coaches as John would then pay them against invoice and can also send off any admission fees that need to be paid ahead of time. 

He can also advise on coach firms and if you need a hall we can help with that as well.
