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.
