Many thanks to everyone who attended the “Ask the Chair” virtual session with the National u3a Chair Ian McCannah on March 11th, approx. 90-members attended, which we hope those attending found informative, any follow up questions to our Regional Trustee Margaret Fiddes at firstname.lastname@example.org
YAHR Facebook Group
We have just set up a new Facebook group for YAHR. It’s a private group intended for any current member of any u3a to join and exchange views and ideas. Hopefully it will become a place to swap things like speaker ideas, somewhere for members to chat across the region and where we can keep useful information in the files section.
Come and explore the history of Captain James Cook and Whitby, in a 2-day event hosted by Whitby Whaler U3A.
This event, which had to be postponed from last summer, will now take place in September 2021, and as well as learning all about Captain Cook delegates will be able to explore the delights of Whitby, including the legendary fish ‘n’ chips!
Dates: From Wednesday 22nd to Thursday 23rd September, with arrival on Tuesday 21st and optional stay until Friday 24th.
We are pleased to say Helen Leech has taken on the role, following the Election of Margaret Fiddes as Regional Trustee for YAHR, Helen can be contacted using contacts page for advice or email@example.com
‘The aim of the role is to support u3as in the region in their efforts to engage with local media and press in order to raise their profile.’
This new role is part of the Trust’s strategic project of raising the profile of the u3a movement. I will be part of a UK wide team of other PR Advisors and I am looking forward to working with u3as in our region.
If u3as could get in touch with details of their publicity or PR secretaries names please that would be most helpful. It would be really useful to build up a database of contacts across the region. Please do email details to me and of course any questions or queries.
Many thanks. Helen
