Well over 100 members did not renew their subscriptions this year. However, our numbers remain fairly constant at 840 since over 100 new members have joined us. We welcome them and hope they are enjoying some of the many activities open to them.

We are now able to send ‘U3A News’ updates to well over half of our members by email.  However, many of the messages have been returned to us because of their incorrect addresses.  I have checked many of them on the subscription forms and find that I have read them incorrectly or the member has changed his address.

So please remember to let me know (by email) if you now have an email address or have changed it since sending me your subscription form.

If you have not been receiving emails, from Harrogate U3A and would like to be on the circulation list please contact Brian Graham by email at
