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 2 Dec 2019:

1. Theatre Group. Now in abeyance as no one has been found to take over the Organising role.

2. Chess Group and Backgammon Group. These groups are both still actively seeking new members. (See their Group pages for more information)

3. Creative Writing Group.Tony Dawson has now restarted the Creative Writing Group with him as Group Organiser. They meet on a flexible monthly basis. If you are interested in joining the group please contact Tony at tony.lizdawson@gmail.com , 07740 404 020 or 01723 563 173

4. Film Group. A new group has started showing films on a Wednesday afternoon (2pm) at the
Methodist Church room (where we have our monthly meetings). These are fortnightly,
having started on 6th November. Roy Foster is the organiser (01723 516075) and will be
advertising what film is to be shown by email. Suggestions are always welcome, so get in
touch.

5. Afternoon Tea Group. This group will be starting up in January. The organisers are Elizabeth
Gilmore and Victoria Mazzuchin. They can be contacted on 01723 518228 and 01723
447382 respectively. Prior menu choices and pre-payment are essential as numbers are limited.

6. Ukelele group: Please note that the beginners group has ceased due to them progressing to
the Tuesday group, thus the Tuesday group is now full.

7. Walking Group 4 (12k+). This group no longer meets on a Sunday. Instead, by popular
request, the group are now walking on the 4th Friday of the month. Please contact Richard
Leek (07714739122) for more details.

Week beginning 10 Feb 2020:

1. Historic Homes and Gardens Group. Trip to Selby Abbey on 11 May. A bigger coach has now been booked for the trip. See the Group page for more details. Trip has now been postponed until later in the year.

WEEK BEGINNING 15 JUNE 2020:

On 4 June the Third Age Trust(TAT) provided advice about groups of 6 people being able to meet up outdoors whilst maintaining social distancing. As well as providing an advisory note on how to carry out a risk assessment for outdoor activities, they also provided a checklist. Links to a copy of these 2 documents are provided opposite for any Group Organiser considering re-starting their "outdoors" Interest Group

WEEK BEGINNING 22 JUNE 2020:

Following the Government COVID-19 update on 23 June, the advice about groups meeting up outdoors is that groups of up to 6 people can meet up. They should maintain 2 metres social distancing if at all possible but this could be reduced to 1 metre if the individuals take other measures to reduce the spread of the virus. eg the wearing of face masks, avoiding face to face contact. Both the Group Organiser and the individual group member need to take account of this when carrying out their risk assessment for the particular Group activity.
Groups are still unable to meet up indoors.
Several of the Interest Groups (eg Bridge, ukelele, Spanish Conversation, Poetry) are meeting up remotely using video conferencing such as Zoom and by using email and telephone.

WEEK BEGINNING 6 JULY:

1. Digital Photography. The group are still planning to publish a 2021 Calendar (See Group page for more details).

2. Natural History Group. The group has re-started (See Group page for more details).

3. 9 Hole Golf. The Group has started meeting again.

4. Walking Groups. 2 of the WALKING groups are currently planning to start again before long, probably in September. They are
working out the details and will let their members know as soon as they are ready to go. Numbers will be restricted, of
course, until government guidelines change.

5. Walking Group 3. Walking Group 3 has been restarted by Roy Foster (See Group page for more details).

6. Handicrafts Group. The HANDICRAFTS group will not continue with Linda Evans as co-ordinator. Due to
health issues she will no longer be able to lead the group but is happy to lend her aid via the phone or email. We wish to
thank her for running the group and wish her allthe best for her future health.
Do you have a craft or hobby you enjoy and would like to share with other U3A members? Would you consider taking over
organising the group once it is possible to meet face to face again? You would not have to teach the group, only organise
meet ups to share expertise. Please give it some thought.

7. The Male Harmony Group has stopped meeting - due to ill Health and lack of numbers.

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