Mid-Northumberland

Local History

Frequency:4th Thursdays
Time:10.30 - 11.30 - Coffee 10.15
Venue:Longhirst Village Hall
Leader:Ann Firth

The purpose of our group is to explore the history of the North-East through the medium of talks and visits.

Talks, which are usually illustrated, are given either by U3A members or local experts but we understand that many members just want to come along to enjoy the show and perhaps learn something. The equipment for showing graphics and DVDs is first class.

Over the summer months we pay visits to local sites of historical interest.

Finally, each year, we meet at Kirkley Hall in mid-December for a Christmas lunch and enjoy an after-lunch talk by an invited speaker.

The topic for the month is announced in the Newsletter and more details are provided to group members in a monthly e-mail.

We are quite a large group, and any U3A member, or potential member, can come along to a meeting if they think they might be interested in the topic. You don’t have to join the group and come to all meetings but if you would like to be included in the group mailing list, please let us know.
