Social Subcommittee

The main purpose of the Social Subcommittee is to put on social events which interest a wide selection of members.

Chair: Val Bullen

Val says:

In the past, the Social Subcommittee has put on up to four events a year. As well as offering a Christmas lunch and social gathering, other events have included a Frank Sinatra evening, Race Night, Summer Barbecues, Murder Mystery evening, Summer Afternoon Tea, with, on occasion, additional interest and entertainment provided by some of our own U3A members. As other groups (such as Drama, Musical Theatre, Jazz and Choir) have also put on successful events, the Social Subcommittee will now just organise the Summer Social and Christmas Lunch. It is difficult to slot in further events to a crowded U3A diary which is, of course, an indication of the success of our organisation.
