Lindsey u3a (Welton)

by | 6 September 2023 | Education and Learning, Gainsborough, Hobbies, Social Group, U3A

Despite the ups and downs of our summer weather both home and abroad, members of Lindsey u3a have continued to meet and socialise. As ever, they offer anyone not in full time employment the opportunity to attend a monthly general meeting 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.

Some of us are more gregarious than others and thrive on meeting new people and sharing experiences while others are more reserved and need encouragement to join in. At Lindsey u3a they aim to give a warm welcome to everyone so if you are attending one of their meetings for the first time please inform someone on Reception and a friendly Greeter will show you round and answer any questions.

Their next meeting will be on 7th September when Fools Gold will be playing and singing folk songs from North East England. Carol and Steve are acoustic musicians and will entertain with images, stories and songs from industrial Britain encompassing tragedies, mysteries, romances and so much more.

On 5th October broadcaster Rob Whiting, who was the longest serving breakfast presenter on Radio Lincolnshire, will be entertaining with stories from his 30-year career in media. He is currently on ‘Boom Radio’. Expect some interesting and probably amusing inside information about his life in broadcasting.

Lindsey u3a’s many interest groups cover a range of physical, creative, historical, discussion and learning activities plus visits to the theatre and places of interest.

If you attend a general meeting, join members 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 get together will take place on 27th September. Everyone is welcome.
