News of the Groups
Dry Stone Walling Group
The Dry Stone Walling Group is going to take place over several days in October. At the moment this group is full.
Spanish Conversation Group
This group will meet fortnightly on Wednesday morning
from 10.30am to 12noon on 10th and 24th October, 7th and 21st November.
The first two meetings will be in the Scaleber Room (next to the kitchen)
at Victoria Hall. The group will initially be working from 'Suenos'.
Table Tennis Group
The Group members arrived at Langcliffe to find that one of the tennis tables was unserviceable because the net supports were broken - undaunted they devised a solution: a net comprising a row of books! The Ruth Rendell Mysteries had a tendency to fall over when struck but overall the makeshift net worked well: a triumph for U3A spirit, skill, and ingenuity! Photo.
REGIONAL and NATIONAL NEWS AND EVENTS
A social event for all WestNet U3As (WestNet includes all members of Bradford, Craven, Ilkley & District, Keighley and Settle U3As).
Ilkley & District U3A is hosting a Ceilidh event for our own members plus our WestNet colleagues from neighbouring U3As; all WestNet U3A members are welcome.
If you have not been to one before – a Ceilidh is a hugely sociable event with lots of excellent music and dancing. There is no need to have any previous ability whatsoever; we will have an expert ‘caller’ who will give clear instructions so that even the very beginner can easily learn the routines and enjoy the dancing. You can come along solo or as a couple – dancing will engage everyone and there is no need to have a partner for the evening. Many dances include ‘progression’ from one partner to another.
Date: Friday 2nd November 2018, Time: 7.00 – 10.00pm, Place: the Main Hall, Clarke Foley Centre, Cunliffe Road, Ilkley, LS299DZ.
Max Numbers: 60. Last year was fully booked, so you need to book early to avoid disappointment. Cost: £5.00. Click here for a booking form.
