A message from Susan Parker:
I moved to Plymouth in 2009 to be closer to my daughter and her family. I had previously lived in a small village on the Northamptonshire, Leicestershire border for more than 30 years.
I knew I needed to make a new circle of friends and a colleague had mentioned that when they retired they might join the u3a. I had never heard of it, but I stored that bit of information away.
2010 I joined Plymouth u3a
2013 I became the Membership Secretary
2015 I started to attend Tamar Valley Network meetings
2017 I became the Chair of Tamar Valley Network
2020 I became Trustee for the South West
2021 Finally met the rest of the Trust Board face-to-face, started to visit u3as, and still learning about the u3a movement.
My ‘retirement’ has never been so busy or so much fun.
I would like to talk about the organisation we have all joined and the joy of involvement in that organisation at all levels. I would also like to talk about the things I am still discovering and the way I would like the South West Region to be involved.
Trustee, South West u3a
