News of new groups from Jan Simpson-Scott, Group Convenor
Croquet
The group had a very successful initial meeting in May, and have decided to meet every Friday morning from 10 am to 12 noon at Carhampton Recreation Centre; the cost is £2 per session, per member. Please contact the convenor Charles Birch for further information (contact details in newsletter).
The Returners' Band
Lorna Grove Smith writes: The group is up and running, meeting twice a month on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays. We are playing as a trio at the moment but are hoping to hear from others with any instrument to join us. My idea grew out of reading the U3A magazine; so many areas seem to have a band of some sort. I decided to offer to host a venue where musicians would know where to find other people with a similar interest to talk music, have a cup of tea, play a few tunes and generally hang out! It doesn't matter what instrument; if we can get enough mixed instruments together we could form a band within the U3A. The venue is my house in Minehead where I can seat about ten, if not more, so we don't need to hire a hall, and there will be a lovely fire during the winter. Do get in touch, if you are interested, with Lorna (contact details in newsletter).
