Christmas and New Year preparations tend to drive other matters out of mind. The result? ‘February amnesia’. For anyone suffering this affliction, here are some gentle reminders of what’s new in Rotherham u3a during February.

If you love your holidays in Spain and its islands, but have never got further than hola, adiós and una cerveza por favor, now’s the time to learn to speak Spanish from scratch in this fun-loving and friendly group. The Absolute Beginners Spanish group meets each Wednesday. Contact Michael Garrett on 07494 806167.

Get fit with the Strollers, exploring different parts of the area on alternate Saturday mornings. Whiston Village and Meadows on 3rd February; Wath Centre and the East End of Manvers Lake on 17th February.
