I joined about 9 years ago and have done 2 years as secretary and am starting my 5th year as Treasurer.
I have also volunteered for 11 plus years at Oxfam and I am still occasionally asked to cover if they are short of volunteers.
If you wish to join the u3a Ken is the first point of contact. He will supply leaflets and information about our u3a and encourage anyone who is interested to come and join us. Ken previously organised our Out & About group.
Chris is a newer member, joining in 2022. She joined the committee after having enjoyed several talks and became concerned that on the retirement of the speaker organisers, that nobody stepped forward to replace them - so she did.
Caryll has lived in Hythe for four and a half years and been a member of u3a for over two years. Her background is in education and taught in secondary schools and adult education as well as working in administration and examining. She is now our Groups coordinator.
Jan is the person who welcomes our new members, trying to ensure that they are looked after and introduced to other members. She says “please introduce yourself to me if you don't know me personally. I can, and will, talk to anyone!”
I joined the u3a in 2013 and soon after started the Photography group. In 2016 I took over the production of the Newsletter, and joined the Committee in 2018.
Gill is another long standing member of the u3a. Over the years she has held many roles on the Committee, and her vast knowledge and experience is always a great help.
