Rotas at Horizons

Chairs and tables are set up before the start of Horizons thanks to the members of the Chair Rota. If you would like to volunteer for this Rota, please contact its Organiser, John Dixon, who is very often present at Horizons.

 If you possibly can, please remember to help clear away chairs and tables around at the end of Horizons at 11.30.

There is a Welcome Desk Rota of helpful volunteers at Horizons waiting to answer your queries  – especially useful if you are a new or potential member wanting to know more about the u3a.

Finally there is a lovely team of members who provide the refreshments weekly at Horizons.
