Have you made any New Year’s Resolutions? Forget about giving up something; instead, think about doing something new. Maybe now is the time to consider joining your local u3a?

Where else can you attend 12 monthly meetings, enjoy a cuppa and a biscuit followed by a speaker plus the opportunity to join as many interest groups as you wish, all for £17.00 a year? It could be the life-changer you never expected – meeting new people, perhaps learning something new or participating in an activity with like-minded people.

Lindsey u3a meets at Welton Village Hall on the first Thursday of the month. Doors open for a cuppa and a biscuit at 9.45am followed by a speaker at 10.30am. If you decide to go along for a look, tell someone on reception you are new and a friendly greeter will show you round and answer any questions.

The first speaker of 2024 will be Clive Wilson asking ‘What can WE do to save the planet?’ on 4th January. Clive is committed to the promotion of sustainable development that will leave the world a better place for the next generations. He believes that if we only do what we have always done we will only produce what we have already got, and this is evidently not good enough in many ways. Food for thought!

On 1st February the speaker will be Tom Lane, well-known local folk personality on Radio Lincolnshire and now on Lincoln City Radio. Along with folk-singing duo Nigel and Teri, their presentation ‘Re-imagining Lincolnshire’ was first performed for a Heritage Lincolnshire Day.

Lindsey u3a offers a wide range of interest groups run by members for members. Visit www.lindseyu3a.org.uk to see if anything appeals to you.

u3a members can also join various online talks, workshops and courses. You can find out more from www.u3a.org.uk.

If you can’t go to a general meeting you could join the, at the ‘Gardeners’ Retreat’ tearoom at Scothern Nurseries for a cuppa and a chat at 10.15am on the fourth Thursday of the month. The next one is 25th January.
