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.

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.
