NATIONAL U3A SUBJECT RESOURCES FOR GROUPS & GROUP LEADERS
Tucked away on the U3A national website are links and subject resources made by people like you. There’s a newsletter for art appreciation; a poster for philosophy and a way to contact a horticulturist, or indeed any expert for advice. There’s a DVD library with ballroom dance videos and advice on yoga. While there’s not as much as a hint for Scrabble here, others might look and find an idea. Start at the National U3A/resources

PROJECTOR
The Melbourn U3A projector is now under the guardianship of Chris Davison. Chris who is also the Membership Secretary can be reached at membership secretary.
