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.

Settle Bridge Club is having a taster evening at 6.00pm on Thursday 12th July at St. John’s Hall, Church Street, Settle. Click here for details.
The object of the evening is to increase the membership of the bridge club but a certain proficiency is required to enjoy the twice weekly club sessions. It is envisaged that some of those attending the Taster Evening will not have that proficiency and they will be pointed in the direction of the U3A group to learn the required skills until they feel confident to play at the club.
If you are not a member of the Bridge Group or the Bridge Club but are interested in learning to play bridge please give call me on 01729 268201 and come to the taster evening if you can.
