Tuesday Live & Monthly MeetingsMarion HuckleProgramme@Chepstowu3a.org.uk409868

During Lockdown, we are arranging alternative events on the first and third Tuesday afternoon of each month, starting at 2:00 pm, using Zoom. See below for details. We will try to make a recording of each Tuesday Live available to view for two weeks following the event.

On 6th April, Peter Strong gave a talk on ‘An Easter walk from Portskewett to Chepstow in 1907’. If you missed the talk, you can view it by clicking on Portskewett Walk and entering the passcode vVJ4j?eO

Dates for your Diary
Tue Apr 20th Tuesday Live - Two and half years in South Georgia. Jenny Bonner is a Chepstow U3A member, who, in 1958, embarked on what was truly, the adventure of a lifetime, when she and her 5 month old son travelled to the other side of the world to be with her husband, Nigel. Find out what life was like for a young family in this challenging and inspiring environment and hear how the family connection with South Georgia has been maintained to this day.
Tue May 4th Tuesday Live Our very own Rose Parkhouse will give a presentation about the Swift colony in Chepstow. Happily, this is ideal timing as it is during the first week in May we usually see the swifts returning to Chepstow.
All being well, Rose and Glyn, also hope to be able to lead some socially distanced evening swift walks, organised through the Nat Hist & Birdwatching Group, in June and/or July, regulations permitting. Rose has indicated that it should be possible to open these evening walks up to non Nat Hist Group members as a one off; an excellent follow-up to her talk.
Tue May 18th Tuesday Live - 'Hidden London: An assortment of lesser known treasures'. Look beyond the Tower of London and the Houses of Parliament to discover some of London's best kept secrets, in the company of David Drury, an official London guide. Travel from the Leytonstone mosaics of Alfred Hitchcock to the Crystal Palace Dinosaurs. Dine in Elizabethan grandeur at Middle Temple Hall or seek calm and tranquility at Neasden Hindu Temple. Marvel at the engineering wonders of the Cathedral of Sewage and the 'Cistern Chapel'. Savour the Victorian splendour of Leadenhall Market or the oasis of the Barbican Conservatory. Join us for an afternoon out, all from the comfort of your home
