There appears to be some confusion over renewal forms.  Those members who receive a newsletter by post should receive a personalised renewal form in the printed newsletter when it arrives, hopefully sometime next week.  Members who only receive their newsletter in electronic form should have had a separate email with a renewal form attached for them to detach and print off.

I would like to take this opportunity to emphasise that unless the appropriate consent boxes on the form are ticked and the form returned to the membership secretary we will not be permitted to store your data and send you a newsletter in any form.  This is as a result of the General Data Protection Regulation which comes into force in May.

If you have any queries please contact 



A booklet - "Little Book of Big Scams" - has been passed on to U3A's by the Third Age Trust which makes good reading and may be of interest to our members.
