  • Discussion Group 2: meet 1st and 3rd Friday 11.00, Olde House, Newbold, Coordinator Roger Watts

Discussion Group 1 spends the first part of the meeting covering a variety of previously agreed topics including politics, religion, art, ethics, culture, science, the youth of today, the old of today, local events and history, topical controversies, old chestnuts etc etc.

After a break for tea/coffee at 11.30, we cover more topical issues. Everyone is encouraged to bring topical issues of their choice for this part of the meeting. For further information contact

Discussion group 2 meets to set the world to rights. There are no sacred cows, no subject is protected from our withering focus - politics, religion, high culture, low culture, the youth of today, the old of today, local events, topical controversies, old chestnuts - we will tackle them all.

We set a programme in advance based on the Group wishes. You can bring your own subjects, contribute or simply listen but one thing is certain - in two weeks time the world will have gone to hell in a handcart - again!

Food and Drink Always important in U3A. We order drinks from the bar at the start and some of us take a light lunch at the end.

We always like to make sure discussions are polite so look at that link.
