Conversational French Group

The Conversational French Interest Group seems to be a victim of its own success. This group now has twelve regular members but because the group meets in member's houses the group, as a whole, feels that we now have to cap the size of the group. Twelve seems to be the maximum number that can be seated in most member's lounges, especially as one also needs some room for books etc.

The Moray Coast U3A Committee and the Conversational French Group Leader will review the situation regularly. If you wish to join this group then please contact the group leader using the link on the Conversational French Group page. Your name will be added to a waiting list. If numbers are sufficient then a second Conversational French Group will be formed.

Desert Island Discs

The Moray Coast branch of the U3A is planning a new “Desert Island Disks” interest group. It is hoped that the group will be launched in March so look out for more information.
The format will follow the classic Radio Four format. For the first session it is expected that the first guest will be Dr. Ann Rennie and the interviewer will be our Chairman, Joan Coverley. Dates, times and the location of meetings have yet to be finalised but look out for news about this planned group.
All Moray Coast U3A members will be notified by email prior to the launch on this new group.
