"A lot of good arguments are spoiled by some fool who knows what he is talking about." Miguel de Unamuno,early-20thC academic and poet
Do you like to spend time thinking about & discussing with friends, what’s happening in the world today…whether it’s in politics, economics, society, media, entertainment, religion or sport?
If you are conscious that we all live in the world and like to debate that world with friends, then the CURRENT AFFAIRS GROUP might be for you.
We meet monthly in the Blue Boar in Hay, have a drink or a coffee and review issues that have interested, amused, enraged or inspired us. Whether you are politically left, right or in-between, your views are respected and of course, challenged in the group.
In 2019 our meetings are scheduled for Feb 18th, March 18th, April 15th, May 20th, June 17th, Sept. 16th, Oct. 21st, Nov. 18th and Dec. 16th at 2.30pm in the winter months and 5.30pm in the summer months.
There are usually ten or 12 of us and we put items for discussion - a newspaper cutting or note - into a hat. The only rule, we decided, was that there would be no rules (except that personal anecdotes may attract the small fine of buying the chips).
Non-U3A-members can attend one Group meeting without joining. Led by Martin Wibberley.
|Dates for your Diary|
|Mon Sep 16th||This is the place for you if you are interested in what is going on in the world around us...in politics, in economics, the media,sport, culture, society....whether it’s at a local, national or international level...& you like to discuss these topics with other U3A members over an informal drink in the Blue Boar pub in Hay.|
We meet once a month, and you would be very welcome to join us...either to share your views or, if you feel a bit reticent, just to learn what others feel. Our members come from all shades of political affiliation , and none, so we are truly independent & free-thinking.
Our next meeting will be at The Blue Boar at 5.30pm on Monday 16th. September....give us a try!!
