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.

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.
