Do you read the Third Age Matters magazine?
Those eagle eyes among you will be well aware that times are getting tougher, and of course our u3a is no exception. Your committee have spent some considerable time thinking how we might save money rather than put up the fees, and one of our largest expenses is the cost of our National magazine which is £3.35 per annum per household to cover the postage on five issues. This is called Third Age Matters (TAM).
We are aware that these are not widely read by our members, though there are some who enjoy receiving and reading them. Other local u3a’s charge their members extra to receive TAM. We don’t want to go down that road at this time but instead we have decided to ask you to let me know if you want to continue to receive this. Therefore will you please let me know by the end of July if you want to continue to receive the magazine. If I don’t hear from you, I will assume you do not want TAM.
