THE annual meeting of the U3A Henley branch was held on Wednesday, April 9 at the YMCA.
It was an occasion for farewells as a number of committee members retired from their current roles, most notably the chair“man” Lesley Holmes, after three years in the job, and Elizabeth Tyler, who has run the music group for more than 20 years.
Elizabeth received an orchid (her favourite flower) by way of thanks. A large bouquet of flowers was presented to Diana Hex with thanks for her many years of service on the branch committee.
A new committee was voted in with Gillian Le Du taking over as chair.
After some friendly arm-twisting, three “volunteers” agreed to take on the running of the monthly talks from Angela Liveing who is standing down.
