These are held in the Festival Hall, Market Rasen (LN8 3HT) on the second Thursday of each month, doors open from 09.45, when we start serving tea/coffee. This is followed by important announcements at 10:30, then our guest speaker. It is the opportunity to find out all that is going on in your U3A.
SEP 12 Derek Tindall – Birds of Prey. Bringing 6-8 Birds including Owls, Hawks & a Vulture, Derek aims to help you to not only interact with the Birds but to get a better understanding of their nature, their history and how we work with them today.
OCT 10 Sally Henshaw – Finding Richard III. The details of the Greyfriars Dig and the unearthing of the King’s body will be revealed by Sally, of The Richard III Society.
NOV 14 AGM Official Business plus a short recital from the recorder group followed by a quiz.
The monthly meeting also offers the opportunity to investigate the many group activities on offer – currently over 40.
- You may belong to as many groups as you like, or you may lead one group and learn at several others.
- It is a good way to make friends and face the challenge of learning something new.
- Not all groups are academic; many involve craft skills and physical activities.
- The majority of groups are small and take place in the home of one of the group with a nominal (usually 50p) contribution towards any tea or coffee that may be provided.
- Larger groups may meet at other venues for which a higher charge may be made.
If you have no desire to join a group you can still belong to the U3A and attend the monthly meetings.
The membership year starts on 1st September and the annual subscription for 2018/19 is a modest £17. Amongst other benefits, this includes our newsletter, the “West Wolds Quarterly” as well as “Third Age Matters”, the national magazine which is mailed to members five times a year.
