A message from the current Magazine Distribution Organiser, Peter Trigwell:
Many rumours are flying about the U3A at the moment with a view to what is happening with the magazine distribution. Let me try and answer some of them. The next Distribution date is the 28th February, and nothing will change at this time, magazines can still be collected from Horizons and from certain group leaders who already hand magazines out at their groups. Magazines will also still be posted out on this occasion.
The changes will be made on the subsequent distribution days. On these days, each new magazine will initially be available for collection at Horizons, and there will be a distribution desk at the following three Horizons. This provides four weekly opportunities to collect your magazine each time.
Hand deliveries will continue for as long as the volunteers wish to carry them out. I would like to wholeheartedly thank all the volunteers who already give up their time to make this process work.
I do now need to ask if there is anyone who is willing to take on the distribution role as I am looking to step down from this post due to other U3A commitments. If anyone is willing could you please get in touch with a member of the Management Committee or me. I would be quite willing to work alongside a new distribution manager for several copies.
A fuller explanation will appear in the next magazine.
