Social Group, North-East Bristol
What: A social group for members in North-East Bristol to provide a forum for U3A members in and around BS16 to meet, socialise and share information about city-wide U3A activities and to promote more activity, including new groups, in the area of North-East Bristol.
When is it: First Monday of the month at 10 am till noon
Where is it: Castle Suite, Badminton Gardens, Beaufort Road, Downend BS16 6UE
We meet at 10.00 a.m. for coffee and biscuits and a very short 'business meeting'. Then we sometimes have a talk by a member - all sorts of things have been planned. There are already several groups which have started as a result of conversations about shared interests - a Saturday Lunch Club, Table Tennis (weekly at Downend Sports Centre), Opera, Showtime!, Film & Theatre, Current Affairs, Social History (listed as History, Social) and Ethics. (Take a look at the individual group pages to find out more about them.)
There is real potential for other groups being formed which only need a little more participation and action to get them started.
New members are most welcome.

Just turn up. Easy access. 2 mins to nearest bus stop. Ample parking nearby (apart from Badminton Gardens car park, which is often busy, there are car parks 100 yds either side of Badminton Gardens.)
