Volunteers needed for Berwick Parks. Kate Dixon, who looks after the Parks on behalf of the NCC, is always looking for new volunteers. At the moment volunteer day is Tuesday 10 - 3, but you don't have to stay all the time. There is also wildlife watching Thursday 1 - 2.30, and there are occasional volunteer events like varnishing the sculptures in Coronation Park. For more information please contact Hilary O'Shea via the button on the Contact page of this website.

Norwegian? Two U3A members are seeking native-Norwegian speaker(s) for conversational practice meetings over tea/coffee in or near Berwick. If you can help, or know of someone who can, please email the Webmaster via the button on the Contact page of this website.

BEA - Berwick Educational Association
The Association runs courses and day schools covering a variety of subjects, from the poetry of the First World War, to local history, geology and archaeology. The courses are classroom based and some involve local field trips.
The courses are open to everyone and most are aimed at the complete beginner. A link to their website is on the right.

Freegle
See the link at the top of the page to the new Freegle in Berwick website - set up by one of our members as a forum for giving away unwanted usable items rather than disposing of them at the tip. You can also search the site to see if someone is giving away something you could use. Items must be free, legal, and usable by anyone.

Walking for Health
This is not a U3A group. Meet at The Maltings Arts Centre steps at 1.30pm every Wednesday. Walks around the town and surrounding areas range from about three quarters of an hour to an hour and a half. Just turn up.
