In a year when Britain celebrates a Royal Wedding, our U3A has two Anniversaries to celebrate, one with a royal connection.
- It’s 15 years since the founding of the Aughton & Ormskirk U3A.
- And 10 years ago this U3A won the Queens Award for Voluntary Service.
- And just 5 years ago, we were commemorating the 10th birthday with a very special quilt made by talented members.
Val Bullen, Chair of the Social Subcommittee has sent the following message to be published on the U3A Website:
Let us extend a big thank you to all those who helped make the Anniversary Celebration on 19 May 2018 a success. As well as the Anniversary Working Party who planned and coordinated the event (Val Bullen, Linda Burden, Peter Trigwell, Jane Astles, Bill Evans, Alex McMinn, Jeff Roberts), many others also played their part including other members the Management Committee, our Trustees and the Social Subcommittee, plus quite a number of U3A members not on any committee – THANK YOU all for your contributions!
Here are two galleries of photos from the recent Anniversary Celebration event held in the Christ Church Ministry Centre on 19 May 2018. Some of these photos feature a number of long-standing members including our founder Chairman, Alex McMinn, member number 1. Click or tap on any photo in a gallery to run that gallery as a slideshow.
