NEWS and NOTICES

News of the Groups

New groups suggested have been Music Appreciation, Spanish Conversation, Wine Tasting and Dry Stone Walling. Let me know if you're interested in any of these.

Several people have expressed interest already in the possibility of joining a Bird Watching group so watch out for further details. Looking at Old Buildings needs someone to help Elizabeth Evans to coordinate this group. And the Lunch Group may need a new coordinator. Please contact me in the first instance if you would like to find out more about this.

Debi Burridge (01729) 825855 debi.burridge@gmail.com

There are new group web pages for Birdwatching and Dance Exercise.


Wine Tasting Group

This new group will start in September, leader Anne Webster. It is envisaged that the group will meet once a month in the evening at a member's house. Times and dates to be arranged. Look out for further details at the Open Meeting.


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.

HOST
There are international students at our universities hoping to have the privilege of meeting people who live in the UK. Having a well-educated younger person from another part of the world visit you for a day, a weekend, or over Christmas, is an ideal way of exchanging ideas about your respective cultures. It’s an opportunity to take a pride in our own country and to understand more about another one, while showing kindness to someone far from home. It’s also great fun. If you’re not sure about doing this on your own, why not get together with another U3A member and make a great international weekend of it? HOST is a well-established charity whose hosts are volunteers. Please see www.hostuk.org or call local organiser Sue Binns on 01845 524846.
