The Red Arrows – an illustrated talk by Phil Holt  : 11.00am 
 The Red Arrows aerobatic team has won the hearts of a nation and is renowned throughout the world, acting as ambassadors for Great Britain and supporting UK industry by demonstrating the capabilities of British equipment and expertise. Since their creation in 1965, the Red Arrows have flown over 4,000 displays in 52 countries.
Phil's illustrated presentation takes us through the events that led to the creation of this exceptional team of pilots. He then introduces the men and women in the famous red suits, who make precision their profession, teamwork their science and aerobatics their art form. He will bring some official Red Arrows Merchandise for sale.
An Air Traffic Controller for almost 40 years, Phil served at seven locations including Heathrow. He was a reservist in the R.A.F., a flying instructor and involved in Maritime Air Region operations; he can count among his flying achievements parachute dropping and flying for the St John’s Ambulance air wing. He continues as an active pilot and is a Flying Display Director, involved with the show circuit for over 30 years.

Phil's talk will begin at 11.00am. Beforehand, at 10.00am, the AGM will be held: hear a summary of the year's activities across the many groups, monthly talks, trips and visits; learn of the (good) state of the U3A's finances; ask questions, make suggestions, and elect (or change) the committee. Coffee will be available at about 10.30am.   Organised by U3A Heritage Coast Lyme Regis. Entry is free for U3A members; for non-members a £2 donation is suggested.
