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.
APR 11 Keith Hanson- Tales of the Tower of London. Chief Exhibitor at The Tower of London for 20 years, Keith takes us through the Tower’s history, famous prisoners and Crown Jewels.
MAY 9 Dr Andrew Jackson – The Lincolnshire Co-op, Some Historical Perspectives. Dr Jackson will enlarge on the history of the Lincolnshire co-op which was founded in 1861.
JUN 13 Stuart Gibbon – Staying Safe. Ex- Senior Police Detective advises on home security, bogus callers, telephone cold callers, mobile phone security and scam mail. A must for everyone to stay safe in these modern times.
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.
