Reminder to all Group Leaders:  It is important that as from January  2019, all U3A groups report any income and expenditure relating to Group Activity to the Treasurer each month.  Even if you have no income or expenditure please let the Treasurer know.


A reminder that we need to include groups income and expenditure in our results.  Many groups do not need to complete monthly reports because they either don’t have any income and expenditure or amounts are very small (less than £100 per year) or the monies in and out occur on the same day.  These groups need to submit an annual statement to the Treasurer stating why they do not need to report – if you haven’t already done so please email me with this information   or send a letter to Formby U3A, PO Box 216, Liverpool, L37 1XQ, or speak to me at the monthly coffee morning.  If your group does have income and expenditure and you’re not already reporting, would you contact me and I can talk you through the straightforward requirements.

Formby U3A Open Day – June 2020

In the February Newsletter the Committee asked for volunteers to help organise an Open Day in June to celebrate 30 years of Formby U3A.  The Chairman made a similar request in a letter to Group Leaders.  Only one volunteer has come forward and a few Groups have offered to be there on the day.  In view of this the Committee considered that it was not going to be possible to hold this event.   This has now been overtaken by events with the cancellation of all meetings for the time being as a result of Covid-19.
