Mansfield U3A’s Shufflers Group holds social meetings for members who have problems that restrict their mobility.
This has enabled members to continue enjoying friendship and outings with like-minded members.
We meet for lunch at various venues that have flat grounds to enable as many as possible to enjoy a short ‘shuffle’: Rufford Park, Vicar Water and Sutton Lawn have all proved very enjoyable as they have facilities for short walks and somewhere for those less able to walk to enjoy the surroundings and have a natter.
Note unless specified these meetings start at 12 noon prompt
The 2019 meetings are as follows:
Aug 22nd Sutton Lawn Visitor Centre NG17 5FU
Sept 26th Fillets Forest Town NG19 0GG.

Unfortunately following my recent accident l no longer feel able to continue running this group.
Temporarily Sylvia Newlyn (624046) has agreed to book venues and keep the group alive but we will need someone to take the helm so please give this some thought l still intend to be part of things but am now not able to be sure of being around all the time but will be available to give advice.
FOR THE TIME BEING we cannot take any more members. For details, or to see if these is a space, ring me on 633981.
