Science and Technology Forum
The meetings are at 2pm on the 1st Thursday of each month in the Croftlands Community Centre and there is a charge for each meeting. This is a new venue for the group and the cost from January 2020 is to be advised.
There is no formal membership and any U3A member is free to attend any session. There is an email distribution list and if you wish to receive information on topics (but have not had an email from us before), please send your details and email address to Andy Renwick.
Recent meetings have had an environmental theme, with a questions and answer session on 6th September on recycling given by Andrew Vickers of South Lakeland DistrictCouncil.
On 3rd October we heard an interesting and informative talk given by member Graham Sanderson on the pros and cons of electric cars compared with petrol/diesel. Issues identified for the future include the high initial price, and if there is a very high take up, then there will be a need for additional power stations and additional public charging points.
The meetings in December 2019 and January 2020 have been cancelled because the Supper Room is not available.
Because of increased charges for the hire of the Supper Room, all future Meetings will be held in the Croftlands Community Centre at the usual time of 2pm on the first Thursday of each month. The Croftlands centre has a large room and there is ample parking to the rear of the building at Central Drive, Ulverston LA12 9JN.
