Retford U3A – Learn, Laugh, Live

by | 11 January 2024 | Education and Learning, Hobbies, Retford, Social Group, U3A

It’s another big month for Retford u3a in January with four new groups getting into stride. Their family of walking groups has spawned a new one targeted at members seeking shorter walks on mainly paved ways. The Strollers are strolling out on Monday mornings. If you would rather stay in and toast the pedestrians on their way, look out for the third wine group, Even More Wine! Yet another new group born out of over-demand for existing groups starting this month is the third Book Club. And finally, they have a new Music Group launching.

If any of these grab your fancy, then check out www.u3asites.org.uk/retford/home or go along to the January General Meeting on Thursday 25th January at 2.00pm at the Well in Retford. You will want to attend anyway to hear their own Betty Merrick speak on the ‘Italian Armistice 80 Years On’. Betty has fascinating tales to tell based on family memories and her own research. Find out about one of the most fascinating but mainly forgotten WWII theatres.

The u3a’s first Big Night Out of 2024 on Friday 12th January at Retford Golf Club is a big one because Sue Paul’s devilishly clever Table Quiz Bingo at the October Big Night Out stumped everyone.

Congratulations to Sue for her entertaining and challenging quiz-setting. The quiz and Retford Golf Club’s dependable catering excellence has ensured another full house. If you are keen to attend, watch out for announcement about their April Big Night Out.
