General U3A notices

Free Books Hatfield, a local not-for-profit charity, is looking for volunteers to help run their bookshop in the Hatfield Galleria. They give out free books to members of the public with the aim of saving unwanted books from landfill, and promoting education and literacy. They try not to throw any books away and have an enormous range of books including academic text books, local history, maps, cookery, travel, novels and children's literature.
If you'd like to help please contact Lynne Paul (lynne.paul1@ntlworld.com) or fbh2016@outlook.com .

If you're a man, 65 or older, you can get a scan to see if you have an "Abdominal Aortic Aneurism" (an enlargement of the main blood vessel in the abdomen which, if left untreated, can be fatal). The scan is free and painless, and takes about 20 minutes.
Ring the Hertfordshire AAA Screening office on 01727 897719 to get an appointment. You can also visit "aaa.screening.nhs.uk" for more information.
