Our walks for the remainder of this year will all be around 7 to 8 miles and within a 20 mile radius of Driffield. Whilst car sharing is still not possible, it is hoped that this will soon be available to everyone.
Volunteers would be greatly appreciated to lead future walks.

STUDY & DISCUSSION GROUP
At our meetings, one member normally speaks on a topic for 20 to 30 minutes, and then the group discuss it. All U3A members are welcome, and while we would be happy if you volunteered to give a talk, there is no requirement to do so. You can just listen and chime in when you feel like it.

The Study and Discussion Group meets on Friday 19 November at 9:30 am in the Driffield Community Centre. This week the topic is "Do the Germans do things better than us?". Harry Houldsworth thinks they might do, and will be telling us why this might be the case.
Feel free to join us.
