Thrapston & District U3A and The National Trust site at Lyveden - A Shared Research Project
The Thrapston & District U3A Shared Research Group presented the Resource File they had produced about Meriel, Lady Tresham, to Emily Wolfe, the Operations Manager of The National Trust site at Lyveden.
The National Trust hopes to get this bound into an A3 book which will be available to everyone once the site at Lyveden re opens later this year. The content provides useful information that can be incorporated into interpretation at the Manor and will enable Meriel to be an integral part of the story.
It is hoped that the group will now research another aspect of Lyveden so that more resources are available for those who may be interested.

Trustee Jean Hogg is very grateful to Stephne Tewson for dealing with the bookings and to the Northamptonshire Network for allowing the use of their bank account. This is very helpful as there is no longer a Regional bank account. The Conference is heavily subsidised by the Third Age Trust. Jean is also very grateful to the group of people who have helped to plan the event. We do hope that U3As from across the Region will send at least one person, follow this link for the booking form.

She writes: I find it hard to believe that this is the second new year newsletter I have written as your Trustee. How time flies. . . It has been a fascinating year, and I continue to be so impressed with all the U3A members I meet who are so active in developing and promoting the movement and in ensuring that our U3As continue to thrive and enhance the lives of Third Agers. Thank you all so much for all you do.
