A tutor is definitely required for Spanish for Beginners and the Spanish Conversation Course to go ahead. The existing tutor who is not a U3A member and who is probably relocating to Auckland charges, so the members of this group are aware that there will be a charge for an outside tutor. Please contact Christine (phone 543 9483) if you know a suitable person.

Three of the co-ordinators are stepping down as co-ordinators, so replacement co-ordinators are required. If you would like to know more about what is involved, please contact one of the existing co-ordinators.
