Retford U3A has been running now for eight years. There are around 600 members and 50 interest groups. There is a group meeting, held once a month, at the Well Baptist Church, Retford, on the fourth Thursday of the month. The July meeting will cover presentations from most of the interest groups.
In the main body of the ‘Well’, demonstrations of music and the spoken word will take place whilst in the upstairs room; interest groups will show off their craft skills and review what they have done over the last year. Members are to be encouraged to bring a friend to this meeting, to allow the U3A to showcase what its interest groups can do, and have achieved.
There will be no meeting in August, but the ‘Autumn Programme’ is well advanced, so look out for future news.
The ethos of the U3A, which stands for The University of the Third Age, is that members keep themselves active in body and mind, learning from each other, with shared experiences.
