Christmas will be with us soon and this is the last newsletter for this year. The next one will be out for the January 8th 2007 meeting. You will see we now have another list of new members so please make them feel welcome especially if they appear to be alone. We will be having a new members meeting again early next year.
We had a rather crowded meeting for new members last month but we hope most questions were answered. It is hard to get round and see everyone at monthly coffee morning but if you have questions don’t hesitate to ask anyone on the committee. The Christmas meeting is a good opportunity with plenty of time to chat over the buffet.The Seasons Greetings to Everyone.
Jackie had a phone call from Ann Shearer who now lives in Scotland her telephone number is 01721730289. She would like to be remembered to anyone who knows her. She belongs to U3A there and runs two groups

Beware it’s a SCAM
The Trading Standards Office are making people aware of the following Scam.
A card is posted through your door from a company called PDS (Parcel Delivery Service) suggesting that they were unable to deliver a parcel and that you need to contact them on 0906 6611911 (a premium rate number).
DO NOT CALL THIS NUMBER, as this is a mail scam originating in Belize. If you call the number and you start to hear a recorded message, you will already have been billed £15 for the phone call. If you do receive a card with these details, then please contact Royal Mail Fraud on 0207 239 6655 or your local Trading Standards Office.
This is a genuine scam and is under investigation.
