U3A BOOK FAIR: At the Seaford U3A’s book fair on Saturday we had more people and books than we’d ever seen and made more money than ever before. I’d like to say thank you to all of those people who brought books down to us and those who bought more and took them away. It was a good morning for everyone and the books which were left over (and there were quite a few), were taken to the local charity shops in Seaford and the proceeds from them will hopefully fill their coffers. We look forward to seeing everyone again next June when we’ll hold our next book fair.
