A warm welcome is extended to any new members who joined us today.
INTRODUCTION OF SPEAKER: Our Guest Speaker today is Lorraine Bellamie-Barker of the Val De Pop U3A Group. Lorraine will talk about her hilarious experiences as an ex-air stewardess with the former BOAC airline, she will be ably assisted with her friend who is an ex-air stewardess with BEA. Verity will be assisting with the visual aids. The talk promises to be both amusing and informative!

As reported during our last meeting several positions have become available to serve on our Committee. Any volunteers for these posts would be gratefully received.
Peter will now inform us of how our search for a new legal Committee is progressing.
There will not be a Speaker at our next meeting as this will be the AGM. Again, we reiterate, we need nominations for the vacated positions on the Committee.
Facebook: Nothing to report.
Press and Publicity
Membership: Membership now stands at 680 current members Disgruntled members will be invited to the A.G.M.
AOB. A suggestion from a member that the Group Leaders clearly identify themselves prior to presenting their reports as quite a few new members do not know Committee Members. A reminder from the committee that the suggestions box for your ideas is near the entry door.
NB for info: we introduced a ruling that anything for AOB must be received in writing prior to this Meeting in order that we can respond.
