As George Bernard Shaw put it, ‘you don’t stop laughing when you grow old, you grow old when you stop laughing’. This is where Lindsey u3a might just inspire you to keep on learning while meeting new people and having a laugh.

u3a circulates a magazine ‘Third Age Matters’ with interesting articles such as one by Carl Honore, a global expert on aging, who asks: “How can we do it better, feel better about it and enjoy this vital stage in our lives?”

Lindsey u3a endeavours to provide a wide range of activities, talks and opportunities to meet people, raise your spirits and have fun. The group meets at Welton Village Hall on the first Thursday of the month.
You are invited with no obligation to one of their meetings. Doors open at 9.45am for tea and coffee, followed by a speaker at 10.30am. If you decide to go along for a look, tell someone on reception you are new and one of their friendly greeters will show you round and answer any questions.

On 6th June speaker Kenneth Moore will present his talk ‘You’ll Fly Laughing’ – a humorous account of 34 years as an RAF Navigator. Then on 4th July Philip Caine’s inspirational talk ‘From Barrow to Baghdad’ about his career around the world will keep members entertained.

If you can’t attend a general meeting you could join the group 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 coffee morning will take place on 27th June. Everyone is welcome.
