Monthly Meetings - new Venue for 2017
St Michael's Church will be increasing their charges for our monthly Meeting again in 2017 - an increase of 125% in two years.

Consequently, the Committee have decided that as from January 2017, the Monthly Meetings will be held at Bramhall URC, which is across the road from St Michael's at a cost of almost 50% of the new charges proposed by St Michael's. The facilities will be much the same but also enable us to accommodate up to 200 people, if required. The existing Car Parking facilities will remain.

The meetings will continue to be held on the third Thursday of the month.

Next Monthly Meeting
The next monthly meeting is on the 20th October 2016 and there will a talk by Gareth Griffith entitled "Finding Mother"

Having failed to find storage space for our gradually increasing range of equipment via the Newsletter and Website, the Committee have secured a small unit at the Apex Self-Storage complex based on the Stanley Green Industrial Estate. This unit will also accommodate space for storage of the books that we hold for sale on behalf of Wellspring/St Ann's Hospice and the old U3A's financial records, which must be held for 6/7 years. It provides secure, dry and fairly easily accessible storage and meets the majority of our storage needs.
