What we do

The Workshop does not just cover financial aspects but a wide variety of subjects of interest to members. This year 2018 we will be looking at Politics using the high profile Parliamentarians living locally. Past talks with a detailed link to the talk itself are outlined below:

In November, Arthur Edwards gave us a brilliant talk on Saving Money on-line. Do check the link to his talk which is almost guaranteed to do what is says on the box!

Arthurs Online Information & Deals

In January, we invited the Citizens Advice to address us on their vital work. This was an interesting review of their work to help us all.

Then in March, Nick Cook of Jinca Ltd, a local IT Company gave us a frightening update on Computer Security and Scams. Again do check the link below which is his presentation; I’m sure you’ll find a lot you didn’t know.

  Avoiding computer scams 2018

We  hope you can come along and make a contribution to the workshop. Any requests or ideas for future subjects would be welcomed.

Members are reminded that during any Workshop, no advice is given and no speaker (nor the U3A) is liable for any action by any member as a result of information gathered .

“I finally know what distinguishes man from the other beasts : financial worries.”   -Jules Renard
