POSSIBLE NEW GROUP - WALKING NETBALL GROUP

Enquiries have been made at Willowbum Sports Centre about the possibility of starting a 'Walking Netball Group' for U3A members. The hope is to get a Wednesday afternoon session 2pm for an hour or perhaps an hour and half. There will be a weekly fee for the use of the court. This is a fun sport taken (as the name says!) at a walking pace.

If anyone is interested in joining the group please get in touch with the co-ordinators of the group.

PHILOSOPHY GROUP – inaugural meeting

We are hoping to set up a philosophy group for those interested in philosophical ideas and who would like to consider these within the context of everyday living. We do not envisage this as a course or a leader-lead group. This would be a gathering of those who are intrigued by historic and modern schools of thought.

An inquiring mind is the only prerequisite!

If you are Interested in pursuing the formation of such a group then please come along to the inaugural meeting. This will be held at St Michael’s Church Hall on Monday 26th February 2018 at 2:30pm
Subsequent meetings might be held on the 2nd and 4th Mondays – to be confirmed
