THE UNIVERSITY OF THE THIRD AGE
12 May The Henry Mills Memorial Lecture
Named in memory of former York U3A member
and benefactor Henry Mills, this Annual Lecture
is free to all York U3A members and their guests
'Carry on Minister'
Rt. Hon. Frank Dobson, Secretary of State for Health
1997 – 1999
Frank, a York man, was Secretary of State for Health in Tony Blair’s
government, where he managed to stop – albeit temporarily - the
‘internal market’. He held several shadow ministerial posts as well
and can be guaranteed to tell us how to enjoy government. Don’t
miss this talk, and bring friends - we will be in the larger space of
the Chapel for the talk itself, but will have coffee beforehand in the
Hall as usual.
9 June Raising the Banners of Freedom
South Africa 1970 - 2016
David Maughan-Brown, Retired Deputy Vice-Chancellor

Living Positively with Dementia
Wendy Mitchell's talk in October 2016 was, for many in the audience, an inspirational one as well as being deeply personal.
Many members have asked to read a transcript of her talk, and this is now available for all U3A members to read (as a pdf) or print their own copy.
