Waveney Valley Study Group
The Waveney Valley Study Group was set up in February 2009 to increase U3A members' knowledge of the landscape, pastimes, rural interests and future of the Waveney Valley.
The Group functions well on the understanding that all members express their views openly and acknowledge that the aim of everyone is to bring a diverse range of interests to the table for all to share. Members are encouraged to introduce speakers to the Group (or give presentations themselves) and outings are enjoyed by all, particularly during the summer months.
There are to date (January 2019) 53 members. There is no limit set on numbers, so we welcome all comers (as long as they are members of the parent U3A)!
We have now concluded our studies on "Coaching Inns in the Waveney Valley". A new study group is embarking on the topic of "Watermills in the Waveney Valley". There are also plans being finalized for presentations and outings, and the monthly newsletter sets out some of these.
For details of forthcoming meetings and presentations see the Latest Newletter in the link to the right.
Visits are arranged, mainly during the summer months, so keep an eye open for these on the regular monthly Newsletter.
Having walked the length of The Waveney Valley Railway and the River Waveney itself (88 miles) both ways, and to the coast and back, the walking group led by Gillian Allard & Thelma Brown are now embarking on walking the Boudicca Way. These walks take place, usually on a Wednesday at monthly intervals, always ending at a convenient wayside inn!
The Group meets on the 3rd Monday in the month at 10am at Wortwell Community and Conference Centre (if we aren't out on a group visit).
For details of future meetings, presentations, outings, etc see the 2019 programme, which can be found via the link on the right hand side.
