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.

WEEK BEGINNING 6 JULY 2020:

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

WEEK BEGINNING 28 SEPTEMBER 2020:

1. Natural History Group. The NATURAL HISTORY group is to lose its leaders! Sadly for us, Janet and David Pickersgill are planning to move out of Filey and relocate nearer their family, thus leaving the Natural History group in need of someone to take over. They have been taking small groups out frequently over the summer enabling the members to enjoy the good weather and the abundant wildlife. We do wish them well in their new home and send them our heartfelt thanks for all their work for Filey and District U3A over the years. Feast your eyes on the last of Janet’s nature photos in the September Newsletter. David and Janet you will be sorely missed.

WEEK BEGINNING 10 MAY 2021:

The Badminton Group is no longer an authorised U3A Interest Group. See Group page for more information.

WEEK BEGINNING 20 SEPTEMBER 2021

1. Walking Groups

You will be aware that we have two groups at the moment that meet fortnightly. Peter Greaves leads the group that meets on Fridays and Phil Eastell the group that meets on Mondays. Walks are usually planned for about five miles.

Some walkers find this a bit too demanding and Wendy Eastell has offered to lead a group with a target of about two miles. The intention is to convene at 9.30 at the bus station in Filey on Mondays with Phil's 'five mile' group and then head off on separate walks. The plan is to start this extra group on MONDAY 4TH OCTOBER and all are welcome.

The idea is very simple, but if you have any questions about either of the walks, Wendy and Phil are on 01723 658582.

WEEK BEGINNING 27 SEPTEMBER 2021

1. Up to date copies of all of the different types of Insurance provided by TAT have been put in the LINKS Section.
To help Group Organisers carry out a Risk Assessment for their Activities, under current Covid-19 conditions, updated Risk Assessment Checklists have been put in the LINKS Section.

2. Handicrafts Group

We have a new group. Christine Keir-Thompson has agreed to lead it. Initially it will concentrate on crochet and knitting and will explore other skills for inclusion. The plan is to start in November. Eleanor Harris is helping to get the group started, so please contact her on 07807 474009 or Christine on 07788 988403 for more information.

3. New Theatre and Film Group

At our first meeting this week we established a broad range of activities to cover every aspect of the subject. These include:-

Visits to live theatre productions - professional and amateur

Attending local theatre 'streamings' of live West End performances.

Viewing classic films

Talks from visiting professionals - performance and production

Circulating newsletters of drama performances on TV and key news about upcoming

events - and other related ideas to be developed as we go.

The meeting was well attended and we are ready to plan our first event, which will be tailored to the size of our group. This will be clearer from the response from you all to this news.

VENUE Our meeting was held at Hunmanby because of the one-off free availability of the room, BUT all future events that require a meeting place will be held in FILEY at a venue suitable for the number expected. So, for those interested in joining our group, please contact me on 01723 563173 or at tony.lizdawson@gmail.com

Janet Green regrets that she must give up leading this group. If anybody feels able to replace her, please call her on 01723 449940. Thanks Janet.
