Bolsover District U3A


Letter from the Chair

To All Bolsover District U3A Members

Firstly, I have to express grateful thanks to Ruth, our retiring Chair, for her relentless work over the past three years.
Secondly, I would like to thank all our members for showing their  support and electing me as Chair for the next twelve months. Just to clarify, all committee stand for one year and must be re-elected at the next AGM.
I am so looking forward to the year ahead and hope to make it a year we can all look back on as one of enjoyment and fun
We have wonderful Groups Coordinators, who are responsible for group development and for supporting our group leaders. The interest groups are the mainstay of the U3A and, I believe, we have some of the best!
Bolsover District U3A has an exceptionally firm foundation which the Committee will maintain and develop
Finally, Our U3A  belongs to every single member and so every single member has the right and responsibility to make it the best experience possible.
So here’s to the next twelve months, I will give it my best. Looking forward to the opportunity and challenge of serving as Chair for BDU3A
Learn Laugh and Live
