Don’t leave a mess for the kids (posted 7 June 2018)
Most of us are in the Third Age and there is just one more to go. The Fourth Age is a time of reflection on our lives and preparing for what we believe comes next. One thing we don’t want to do is leave behind a legal mess for our children. That means having our wishes spelt out in an up-to-date, legal will. Before we reach that stage, we also need to specify how we wish to be cared for if we ever need intensive care. This means giving Power of Attorney for financial and health matters to someone we trust. Just as important is to have an Advanced Health Directive in place. I’m sure most of us have experience with these matters when dealing with our parents or other close relatives.
Malcolm Liston, a well known local solicitor, is giving a talk on these matters on Wednesday 18th July at 10am in the Glyn Davies Room. This talk is highly relevant to all of us, so please enrol now by going to the Health and Wellbeing category under Courses.

AN OPERA GALA – Part 2
Great moments to Explore and Enjoy!
Zarzuela! Spanish lyric-dramatic genre of Opera, combining song and dance.
It is closely linked to traditional Madrid. The city has been the source of inspiration for many a zarzuela, a genre that deals with the social realities of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
Operetta excerpts and by popular demand the Young and Fabulous Dmitri Hvorostovsky.
Excerpts of the Baden-Baden Opera Gala 2007 featuring Elina Garanca, Anna Netrebko, Ramon Vargas and Ludovic Tezier.
And time permitting – a taste of some top singers Herman heard live!

Please provide an email address (posted 22 Feb 2018)
We currently have 60 members who have not provided us with an email address. It is extremely difficult to keep these members up-to-date with course additions, course changes, course cancellations, U3A events and newsletters. Postage costs are prohibitive and slow, so we are unlikely to be using postal services in future for these tasks.
New email addresses (posted 21 Feb 2018)
As stated below, there will be quite a few changes to the web site and ancilliary services in the near future. Some of these are happening in the background so most won’t notice. For example, we have just finished migrating to a new service provider and new server. Hopefully there will now be minimal drop-outs and the site will be more secure from spammers and hackers.
Another change is to important email addresses. Please use these new email addresses when contacting the following:
Course co-ordinator – firstname.lastname@example.org
Membership – email@example.com
Treasurer – firstname.lastname@example.org
Secretary – email@example.com
Newsletter editor – firstname.lastname@example.org
Webmaster – email@example.com
