Over the last few months our programme has included visits to:

- New Lanark,
- Glasgow Special Collections,
- Maryhill Burgh Hall,
- the Museums Resource Centre,
- Kelvin Hall
- the Mitchell Library Glasgow collection,
- Garnethill Synagogue,
- the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow, and
- Glasgow Cathedral

We have some wonderful photos capturing these visits.

--------------------

On 15 April we had presentations from some of our group members on what they've found out so far while they've been involved in the Radical Risings project. Go to our dedicated Project webpage to read the presentations. https://u3asites.org.uk/glasgow-west-end/page/95138

--------------------
On 27 May we had another, more focused tour of the Kelvin Hall museums collection. This time we were given the opportunity (suitably gloved up) to delve into boxes containing some of the smaller items in the collection. It was incredibly exciting to come across one fascinating object after another.
--------------------

There will be no meetings during July and August but this period should give us the opportunity to begin planning events for next session. Suggestions for visits or topics welcome.

To get us started, we have the dates below for you to put in your diary now:

Monday, 16th September at 11am - a talk by on the subject "Coats & Clark- History's Binding Thread" by one of our U3A members who is a former curator at Paisley Museum. This will be a joint meeting with Paisley and District U3A.

Monday, 7th October, at 11am - a further session at Glasgow Museums' Resource Centre. The resource centre team will be pulling together specific items relating to the period around the 1820 Radical Rising.
--------------------
Monday 11 November at 11am - presentation from The Friends of Glasgow Necropolis
--------------------
