  2. Hello Chris

    I tried sending something to what I thought was your email address last week, butmust have got it wrong.
    It was titled U3A Campbelltown General meeting
    Hello Chris

    Thank you for getting back to me so quickly.

    Basically what I am interested in is a speaker/demo for a general meeting to be held in November, on the first Friday (6th November) at our premises, the Marchant Centre, on Gorge Rd at Athelstone. This would be a daytime meeting which I would envisage covering learning to play the ukulele, costs etc. We usually start these meetings at 2 pm, talk covers 45 mins to an hour, and we have a shared afternoon tea. Currently our membership is well over 200, but these meetings usually attract about 40-50 members.

    We have been thinking of the possibility of offering a ukulele group/class for our members next year.
    Perhaps a sticking point is that U3A tutors are not paid.
    I wondered if you could perhaps put us in touch with a retired person in this area who would be willing to try his/her hand at starting the group up.
    The class would be perhaps a fortnightly event, perhaps in the afternoon. Most of our classes are 1-2 hours.

    I do have a deadline for setting such a meeting up - our newsletter is published at the end of this month and I would need to get the details into it.
