Annual General Meeting

Invitation to the Annual  General Meeting – 18 November

All members are cordially invited to the AGM which will be held on Tuesday 18 November at The Hideaway at 2pm.

Special guest Verwood Town Mayor Cllr Mrs Pat Morrow will join us for an informal social gathering. Tea, coffee and cake will be provided for all attending. The Mayor will then open the formal part of the meeting.

Members are urged to attend. This is your chance not just to hear reports on the previous year’s activities but also to have your say about how you want Verwood U3A to move forward. Also while it is nice to have an increased membership we have to make sure we have a quorum for the meeting, which is 20% of the total.

Please look at the papers for the AGM, namely the agenda, minutes of last year’s AGM, accounts and nomination forms if you wish to nominate a member for the Committee. Hard copies will also be available on the day and a copy can be read in the U3A Folder located on the display racks near the desk in Verwood Library where you can also collect nomination forms.

Cardmaking group fundraising


The cardmaking group have been working hard not only having fun making cards but also selling them.  We decided that Riding for the Disabled was a worthwhile local charity who would welcome our small donations and, having seen the joy on the faces of the children when riding, it was a good decision.  We were able to hand over our first cheque for £100 recently and have already made a start on the next £100.  A big 'thank you' to all the ladies for their enthusiastic contributions.
