December 2018 Updates

Message from the Acting Chair:
Its that time of year again and the festive season is almost upon us  again, before long we will be into another New Year. That being the case, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you, our Flintshire U3A members, for helping to make this yet another successful year for FU3A.  Many thanks particularly  to our group coordinators, our volunteer helpers at our various events and meetings and to our committee who have kept things ticking over in the back ground, helping to keep things running like the well oiled machine that is Flintshire U3A. My particular thanks go to Chris Winner who as Chairman of Flintshire U3A never seemed to stand still in her efforts to improve our U3A here in Flintshire, best wishes to her as she takes on her new role as Wales Trustee .  As you can see on the web site we have events coming up within the next  few weeks and into the New Year and beyond, so don’t forget to put them in your diary (U3A ones are still available).
Finally may I wish you and your families all the very best for Christmas and the New Year.  All the very best to you all
John Tiplady (Acting Chairman)

Flintshire U3A

What's New Calendar

The University of the Third Age (U3A) is an international self-help organisation for retired and semi-retired people, in their Third Age. It provides educational, creative and leisure opportunities in lifelong learning. The success of each U3A is that they draw on the knowledge, experience and skills of their own members.

Flintshire U3A is a vibrant association of groups, which meet to offer a wide variety of activities and interests.
These meetings also offer a chance to make new friends, share interests and develop new skills in an informal and friendly atmosphere.
