Coffee Mornings and Monthly Lunches

Our primary meetings are Coffee Morning Meetings & Monthly Lunches.
They provide an opportunity for you to talk to members of your Committee. They are both forums for you to tell us about issues that interest you or new groups you might like to be formed.

PICNIC AT THE MEADOWS PAVILION

Your committee would like to invite you to our Jubilee party to be held at the Meadows Pavilion and Sports Ground in Woolacombe.

Our picnic will be based on 1950’s street party food which will revive old memories for some of us and a new experience for the younger members.

The WHOLE DAY is being funded by our U3A, SO THERE WILL BE NO CHARGE FOR MEMBERS.
We have also arranged for Community buses, to bring you to the party. This will include
pick ups for members from Ilfracombe, Combe Martin and surrounding areas.
Those who wish may bring their own champagne, wine, beer although soft drinks will be available. Please bring your own glasses. There will be tables and chairs there, but you can bring your own chairs, picnic blankets etc for an authentic feel.
Full details will be published in your next newsletter
If you have any questions please ring Sylvia on xxx. Always happy to help if I can.
