Tuesday 25th September - Come along and meet the new steering group and join in the general discussion

Many of our regular members were rather concerned during the first six months of the year because it was not clear if the Truro Monthly Meetings would continue beyond June. I am pleased to allay any fears on that score and announce that the new committee have given the thumbs up for us to continue.
The problem was never simply finance but how the meetings would continue after Dr. Tony Herring's demise in December. I found myself assisting Tony as his health deteriorated last year and I was determined to struggle on until June this year.
Thankfully at the June meeting our appeal for help did not fall on deaf ears and a number of members have stepped forward to offer support.  The new "steering group" will be getting together to discuss the September meeting and also to put in place arrangements for the winter and spring meetings.
This heralds the start of a new era for our Monthly Meetings, so please come along in September, meet the new team and, more importantly, have a say in the future of the Truro Monthly Meetings.

Perranwell Meeting 1st August
Sue Sayer from The Cornwall seals group gave us a fascinating presentation on seal pups and seal life around Cornish shores. It proved how lucky we are to have such dedicated people that give their time to collate all this information and  in Cornwall  we are able to see these mammals in their natural environment. Any U3A members that sight seals on our coast line this info can be reported to Sue via her website google Sue Sayer and follow the link.
