If you have already sent off your 2018 subscription, many thanks, and you can smugly skip to the next article!.

Otherwise, we all pay annually, so unless you have joined and paid since Nov 1st, it is time to do so again. January 1st is the due date, but please don’t wait till then.

We still like cheques best, but if that is not so easy for you, bank transfer is also OK, and the details are below.

Cheques in the amount of £18 per head should be made out to Jersey U3A and posted to our treasurer: Mrs J. White, 7 Seacrest Apts, Petit Port, St Brelade, JE3 8NP.

Bank details to pay your £18 online are as follows:  Account Name:  The Jersey U3A; Account Number: 27350851; Sort Code: 60-12-03; Reference: U3A2018 …followed by your name.


YIt inevitably happens from time to time that a group runs out of steam, or its convener needs to take a break, or maybe they move away. For example, Andrea Hall is in the process of leaving us. We thank her very much indeed for convening various groups for us over the years. Other groups are winding up or on hold just now. Yet in total numbers, our U3A keeps growing. It is obvious, therefore, that we need new groups and for that, we need conveners. This means you! Please don’t be shy. Plenty of help and advice is available, and if you’re not sure what topic to offer, let’s at least discuss the possibilities. Short of running a group yourself, you could also help with one of the larger groups when a convener is away.


As before, a direct holiday is planned jointly with the Arts Society and run by GoTours. This one is to Provence, with the theme Cezanne and Van Gogh. Helen and I will be there. Dates are Sep 3rd–9th 2018: 6 nights,7 days. The cost is £1395. I have brochures, which I will bring to the lunch, to Art History group, etc, or get one from GoTours. (You book with them, but please let me know.)
