Truro Conservative Club. Monthly meeting.
A big thank you to Eric Rabjohns and Chrissie for their musical entertainment at our March meeting. Eric with his guitar and stories was a perfect accompaniment to Chrissie and her singing along with her soaring and fluttering recorder playing. They provided us with an eclectic mix of music from thoughtful ballads to everlasting pop music.

Perranwell Meeting, Wednesday 2nd May, 2018
10:00 for 10:30 at the Perranwell Centre

This is to be an exploratory meeting to pose the question, “Do you, our Carrick U3A members, wish a regular monthly meeting to be held in Perranwell and, if so, would you be willing to help organise it?”

Such a question was put at a similar meeting in Falmouth on 7th March, see John Bishop’s report in the April Newsletter. The result was a resounding “Yes!” Several volunteer helpers came forward and a small steering group was formed, one of whose members, Wendy Morris, has since been elected to the main Carrick U3A Committee.

There is now an opportunity for all of our members, not only those living around Perranwell and Perranarworthal, who wish to continue meeting each month at the Perranwell Centre. Just what form the meetings, in future, may take and how they might be organised will be matters for discussion among those who attend, under the guidance of our new Chairman, John Bishop, and subject to the final approval of the Committee.

This move is part of the new Committee’s wish for greater transparency and devolution within Carrick U3A. There will be a further, similar Truro meeting, at the Conservative Club, on Tuesday, 26th June.
