These are held in the Festival Hall, Market Rasen (LN8 3HT) on the second Thursday of each month, doors open from 09.15, and serving tea/coffee at 09:45, which is followed by important announcements at 10:30, then our guest speaker. This is the opportunity to find out all that is going on in your U3A.
JUL 11 Loretta Rivett- Lincolnshire Dialects. It may frit frim foak or even give them a meagrim but Linkisheere’s traditional dialect is more than just chitter n’ jabber – it’s proud heritage. The born-and-bred Yellowbelly will be telling local folktales and poems, as well as explaining the origins of Lincolnshire words, some of which date back to the 14th century.
AUG 8 Karen Crow – Lincoln Ghost Walks. Lincoln is steeped in spooky stories and ghostly tales, let Karen guide you through the legends.
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.
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 group leader’s home 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 three times a year.
