Midsummer History Trail Host ‐ Settle District U3A Wednesday, 19 June 2019 From 6 pm


Monday Exercise Group - This group is taking a break for the summer. It hopes to reconvene in the Autumn but desperately needs a new leader. The group has managed for some weeks with group members leading the sessions. It is a social group as much as a gentle exercise group and is very much appreciated by the members. Is there anyone in our U3A who feels they could help or might know someone who could? Let me know, Debi Burridge 825855 debi.burridge@gmail.com

RST - Reluctantly it has been decided that this group will not now take place in September. Apologies to all who showed interest.

Existing U3A members can sign up online for classes using the Beacon members area.

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.
