Open Meetings

Wednesday 27th February: Open meeting for members and guests

David Davies, " The slaying of Dragons." The Thatcher Years, when she slayed the dragons of the Trades Unions and the EU, and in turn was herself slain .

This is one of our regular monthly meetings with a speaker, where you can:

  • listen to a speaker on a popular topic,
  • chat with members of some of the Groups to learn about their activities,
  • meet and chat with the committee members,
  • meet some of the group leaders and maybe join their group, if they are still recruiting new group members
  • enjoy tea or coffee in the company of other local U3A members
These meetings are free to all members. Guests and visitors are always warmly welcomed and there is a modest charge of £2 to help cover the hire of the hall and tea or coffee (refunded if you decide to join us on the day - which we hope you will).

Festive Cheer!

A large turn-out of members attending the Open Meeting on 19 th December enjoyed a musical quiz ‘Sounds Like Christmas,’ prepared and brilliantly presented by David Monkman and Alan Pengilley.
The entertaining and amusing quiz had questions ranging from classical to pop - from Felix Mendelssohn to Noddy Holder!

After the quiz, members tucked into mince pies, fruit cake and other goodies, with the musical theme continuing through a backdrop of piano melodies kindly provided by Ann Hembry. It was an enjoyable afternoon and a nice way to start the festive season.

All good wishes for the Christmas period and for a happy, healthy and peaceful 2019!

Your U3A Committee
