Have fun practicing your ball skills
‘Walking football’? Not for me, I thought, never having played the game and in any case preferring rugby. But after Katy Taylor’s excellent coaching on basic ball skills (using both feet and hands and a nice soft ball), I am beginning to see the light. However, we are short of people and would welcome new members if you would like to give this gentle form of exercise a try. For further details contact Katy (01289 382352).

Russian Group?
Are there any native Russian speakers or fluent speakers of Russian out there who would be willing to teach or lead a conversational Russian group? There are a few members who have expressed an interest in the Russian language and culture, and I'm sure there must be some more interested parties out there. Some of us have tackled Russian in the distant and not too distant past to varying levels and would love to take it up again. If anybody is interested in taking on a Russian conversational group we would be very grateful. Please contact Hilary O’Shea (atalanta903@gmail.com) if you are interested in joining or leading the group. Большое спасибо!

U3A Networking
We have a networking arrangement with Alnwick, Coquetdale and Wooler U3As. Without having to pay a membership fee, we can join groups or attend events organised by those U3As, as long as there are places available; and of course the same applies to them if they wish to join any of our activities. Naturally, we do have to pay towards any room hire if appropriate. Links to their websites are on the right of this page.

U3A leaflet
There is a new Berwick U3A leaflet, which will be available at Open Meetings, for anyone who wishes to show it to their friends or relatives.

U3A Legal Helpline. Please see the link at the top of this page for how to access to the 24 hour U3A Legal Helpline.
