Really Useful Members (RUMS)

Any member can put themselves forward to be identified as a contact willing to help with one or more of the following:

• Help with u3a events: setting up a venue, chairs, tables, gazebo, etc.

• Offering transport to members, unable to transport themselves, to events and open meetings.

• Help with manning u3a stalls at events such as the Bishop's Cleeve Street Fair.

The member willing to be a RUM will have their name and contact details put on an identified RUMs list, which will be held by the RUMs Co-ordinator and placed on Beacon.

If you are able to help please contact the RUMS Co-ordinator.
