On Tuesday, July 4th. our U3A held it's annual 'Showcase ' in Biddulph Town Hall. This event was also part of the four week 'Biddulph Festival'.
The Town Hall was filled with very creative and imaginative displays 'showcasing' most of the U3A's groups and demonstrating the very wide range of activities that our local U3A has to offer.
The display stands ranged from the creative, art groups, card and parchment making groups, patchwork and quilting groups , different sporing activities and walking including bowls and keep-fit , through to the more intellectual groups of modern foreign languages and book clubs.
Demonstrations were also given from the 'Bridge' and 'Mah-Jong' groups.
The' Photography for Pleasure' group also had a display of photographs taken a local scenes and the clever ways in which photographs can be improved or the presentation changed.
At each display the appropriate leaders were on hand to give information and advice on the joining the individual group or what joining that particular group has to offer.
The 'Showcase ' not only gives the general public the opportunity to see what goes on in a local U3A organization but also gives the members and the leaders, already involved in Biddulph U3A , the chance to see the different groups . Many of the leaders welcomed the opportunity to have a 'chat' with other leaders and members.
Chairman, Dave Boothroyd, commented ,' We have had a very busy and a very successful year here in Biddulph U3A. Our annual 'Showcase' gives us a chance to advertise our many activities and we have already recruited several new members. We are looking forward to another year of continuing growth with lots of fun and friendship'.
Beverley Webb, one of the leaders of the ladies' 'Keep-Fit' groups, remarked, 'The three keep-fit' groups on offer at Biddulph U3A are so popular with the lady members . It just shows that you are never too old to get fit, have an enjoyable time, and have the opportunity to make new friends.,
