Please Note: The following corrections apply to the course list that was printed and sent to members:


TAI CHI - Day of the week is correct, dates should be 8, 15, 22 February

MINDFULNESS MEDITATION - Day of the week is correct, date should be from 6 February


The online version has the correct dates.

Membership Renewals

Are you an existing member for 2017? If so then please be aware that your membership renewal falls due on January 1 but it would make our life so much easier if you could renew beforehand. We have made two important changes this year to make the process much easier:


You no longer need to complete a membership forms for renewals unless any of your details – postal address, home phone, mobile phone or email address - have changed. However, we do still need to be able to associate a payment with a membership renewal so make sure that any payment (using online banking or by mail) includes your name and, where possible, your current membership number.


You can also drop of membership payments - with or without a membership form - at the Nambucca Community and Arts Centre during Gallery hours (10:00 to 3:00 Mon to Fri, and 09:30 to 11:30 Sat). Your payment, and form if required must be in a sealed envelope with you name (and number) written on the outside and must contain the correct payment amount. The person on gallery duty will simply receive the envelope from you for collection by U3A; they cannot provide change or issue receipts.
