The summit produced one early outcome which was reported on 21 July by Martin Preston who informed the organizers that U3A have struck up a link with the Health and Wellbeing arm of Swindon Borough Council (SBC). The SBC will now be able to give their clients information on the activities of the U3A and the opportunities that they can offer.

The organizers wish to thank the Lawn Community Association
for providing the meeting room free of charge.


Swindon Seniors Forum were sorry to learn of the death of our patron, Lord Joffe. We will continue to be very grateful for his support for the Forum and will always remember his generosity both with his practical support and through the sharing of his wide experience and knowledge. We have compiled this special section to celebrate some of the high profile achievements of our patron, may he rest in peace.
