Next meeting Thursday 20th March

Our next members’ meeting will take place on Thursday, 20th March, 2014 at Central Methodists Hall.   I know you will happy to welcome as our guest Mayor Councillor Karl Boggis of Hebden Royd Town Council.

 We propose to show a slideshow prior to the beginning of our meeting which was recently compiled by the late Philip Willis.   Philip was a very active member of the Publicity Group and its members wish to express their special thanks for all Philip’s work for u3a tod.   Additionally, Philip was a great asset to our Photographic Group with his experience, knowledge and passion for photography which he generously and willingly shared with fellow members of the Group.   He will be very sadly missed.

Our guest speaker – Geoff Carter (Retired GP) is returning with his talk ‘’The Galapagos, Darwin and the Theory of Evolution’.   Geoff tells me he has already given this talk to another U3A and it was extremely well received.   He will be happy to take your questions at the end.

I look forward to meeting you on the 20th.

We now have, as our guest speaker in April, Dave Wilson – Area Countryside Officer – Upper Valley – with his talk ‘The Protection of Our Rich and Natural Environment’ – (The Work of the Calderdale Countryside Service).

 The funeral of Philip Willis will take place at 1.30 pm on Monday, 17th March, 2014 at Priestwell Chapel, Todmorden.

 Sincerely – Jean

Jean A Pearson – Chairman – U3A Todmorden
