Cheshunt U3A currently run a Cribbage group on Tuesdays however they are reaching maximum numbers so with the interest there has been shown we thought we could start another group. Also many members have asked if we have a Canasta Group. Well we do run a Bolivia Group, a card game which is a derivation of Canasta but with the interest shown we thought we could combine the two card games and have one formal group which hopefully will satisfy all parties.
The inaugural meeting took place on Monday 19th March at 2pm at St Clements Church, Cheshunt Wash EN80LU, opposite Hillview Gardens. Twenty people came with an even split for those that wanted Cribbage and those that wished to play Canasta.
The next dates are 2nd and 16th March at 2pm. We have averaged so far about 16 members per session. The venue has wheelchair access and will accommodate vehicles in the grounds as necessary. A small charge of £2 or less, depending on numbers attending, is collected to cover the cost of hall hire and tea/biscuits.
