Filey & District

Groups

At the core of Filey & District U3A are our Group activities which meet at various locations, times and days, in hired rooms or members' homes.
These groups are on a self-help basis and are run by members for members. Do you have a talent that you would like to share? if so let us know and we will help you set up a group to pass on your knowledge.

REMINDER
Please remember to take your ICE (In Case of Emergency) information with you when you attend any activity organised by Filey and District U3A. (In particular when you attend any trips/outings). Most mobile phones allow you to input your ICE details. Alternatively you could carry an ICE information card - blank cards are available from our Secretary.
PLEASE NOTE: ALL U3A ACTIVITIES UNDERTAKEN ARE AT THE MEMBERS OWN RISK.

Following the AGM in March 2018 an Overall Group Update will be produced here on a regular basis.

Week beginning 22 April 2019:

1. Chess Group. The chess group is now down to 2-3 regular players. If you are interested in joining the group please contact Jeff Meek for more information.

2. Poetry Group. Tony Dawson has taken over as Organiser for the Group. (See Poetry Group Page for more information)

3. Creative Writing Group. As well as taking over the Poetry Group, Tony Dawson hopes to be able to re-start the Creative Writing Group. More information to follow.

4. Theatre Group.

The Filey and District U3A Theatre Group has been running very successfully for many years. Laraine has done most of the liaising with Theatres and coach companies to obtain the best deal for U3A members. Due to the long term treatment being received by Laraine, the Theatre Group is now "on hold" until Laraine has recovered. Alison and Gil are handling the 3 days coach trip to Oxford in October but are not going to be arranging anything else, for the time being.

Thus we are looking at setting up a second Theatre Group in place of the existing Group. We need one or perhaps a couple of members to volunteer to start up the Group. Alison and Gil can provide advice and input but it does need someone to take on the lead role for planning the outings and contacting the Theatres.
If you are interested and would like to know more about what is required please contact either Alison (514698) or Gil(641501) for more information.

STOP PRESS: At the moment we have 7 places vacant on our outing to Newby Hall and Gardens in Ripon on Thursday 19th September. (See Groups page for more information). We need to fill the coach to make the outing viable.

If you have a family member or friend(s) who would like to go with you on this outing, please let me know as soon as possible. If we find that we have not filled the coach by the end of the July meeting we will cancel the outing. We need to let the coach company know as soon as possible.

Please ring me, (a.s.a.p.) if you want to to go, but not yet signed up ( and paid the deposit!!) or if you want to take someone with you or you want some information. My phone number is 01723 512444 (Eileen).

Several of the Interest Groups are actively seeking new members. Please see their Group pages for up to date information.
