Looking at Old Buildings
The January meeting will be on Thursday 25th at 2pm at Victoria Hall. The speaker, Michael Clark, will be giving an illustrated talk on his former home, Rochford Hall, Essex, which was the original home of Sir Thomas Boleyn, father of Anne! This promises to be a wonderful chance to see and hear about a historic house and its restoration and refurbishment.
All welcome

The Weekenders Group
The Group met for a very jolly Christmas meal at the cafe at Limestone View on Saturday 16th December. The food and the company were both excellent. And Mike Driver entertained everyone after lunch with some magic tricks!

The next meeting is on Saturday January 13th at 11am in the lounge at Limestone View. Come for coffee, company and chat.

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 or call local organiser Sue Binns on 01845 52484601845 524846.
