On June 9th Mr George Rowe will give his talk "The Probation Service" followed,as usual,by refreshments.

On May 12 th our members did a Memorabilia " do it yourself" meeting. They brought various things of personal or historical interest to share with the group. This is very much in line with ethos of the U3A and it was fascinating to be reminded of the things that were commonplace years ago but had mostly been forgotten. We tried old wraparound pinnies that our mothers used to wear and looked at metal curling tongs and remembered the smell of burning hair. We looked at war medals and photos and old toys etc. the meeting was very successful and we plan to do it again in August as we did not see all the items that members had brought.
