NW Region U3A Conference and AGM

I am pleased to provide the following pre-meeting papers for the Annual General Meeting on 29th May in Liverpool.

Agenda       Document >> HERE

This contains the list of Nominations for Officers and Committee Members of the Executive.  As the number of nominations received is fewer than the number of vacancies, no election is required.

There have been no resolutions proposed for consideration by the meeting.

Minutes, AGM 2017     Document  >> HERE

Annual accounts, 2017/18   Document  >>  HERE

I should be grateful if Delegates would please bring these attachments – the Agenda, 2017 Minutes and the Annual Accounts – to the AGM.  The current Constitution can be viewed on the Region’s website (from Welcome page click link to NW Region Documents).

The Annual Conference Day itself

There are still some spaces available for any of your members to attend (10.30am start, Quaker Meeting House, Liverpool); there are discussion groups and two guest speakers prior to the AGM at 2.45pm.  It is FREE but you need to register.  On-line registrations can be accepted up until 24th May from the NW website: Link >> HERE – scroll down to the Annual Conference Day item and click ‘Register’.

I have also attached a map >> HERE for getting to the Meeting House. (red 41 in C2).  Lime Street station is about 9 minutes walk (D1) and Central Station is C/D2. School Lane is very narrow and the Meeting House is a modern brick building on the left when approaching it from Hanover Street. The nearest car park is in Gradwell Street off Hanover Street.

I look forward to seeing you in Liverpool.

Bake Off Competition for June

We are running another Bake Off challenge similar to last years to accompany the AGM meeting in June.




If you would like to take part, please could you fill in the Entry Form with Teresa at the May Monthly meeting, or email me >> HERE before the 23rd MAY. We need to know how many entries we will have so that we can ensure we have enough JAM and SCONES to go with your cups of tea.

Potential New Sub Groups

As previously mentioned in the January newsletter, members of the Leyland U3A theatre visits group have expressed an interest in setting up three new sub groups:

  • Film
  • Dance and ballet
  • Classical music and opera

For anyone who is interested, there will be a meeting at Leyland Methodist Church Hall, Turpin Green (plenty of free car parking space) 3PM – 4PM on Friday 9th February to discuss the scope of these groups and how they could be co-ordinated. Contributions and ideas welcome.

Meeting Venue

Leyland Methodist Church Hall
Turpin Green Lane,
PR25 3HA

If you are unable to attend the meeting but interested in signing up for one or more of the groups, please see Christine Hoey or Hilary Morris at the monthly meeting on Wednesday 14th February
