PLEASE NOTE: For any information about our Group activities, please contact the relevant Group Leader via our Group Co-ordinator, Wendy Jenkins, who is available by email by using the “GROUP CO-ORDINATOR Contact button” on the CONTACT TAB at the top of this website’s “HOME” page. This is to help us to comply with the General Data Protection Regulations. Thank you

TAI CHI GROUP
It is with regret that the Committee has decided that this group is to cease operating from May 31st 2019.
The Tai Chi Group is unique in that it has the services of a paid tutor, funded, in theory, by the members of the group at each weekly session. Unfortunately, due to diminishing numbers attending, the viability has reached the point where the weekly fee would have to rise to a figure that members could not be expected to pay.
Under the rules of the Third Age Trust, we are not encouraged to pay for tuition for our members.

LUNCHEON GROUP
Please note:
Due to there being no offers from members of the Group to stand in as a temporary organiser for a couple of months’ holiday relief, there will be NO FURTHER Luncheon Group meetings until later in the year.

NB: VERY IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ALL OUR MEMBERS:-
It is necessary for our Committee to emphasise that ALL MEMBERS OF OUR U3A MUST BE AWARE that in undertaking ANY U3A ACTIVITY, they are responsible for their OWN CHOICES AND THEIR OWN ABILITIES when joining any Group. Thank you.

LATEST GROUP - MEDITATION AND MINDFULNESS: Please Note: START TIME NOW 10am from March !!
Miles Holcroft, has been using meditation for over 40 years, and he now runs a Meditation and Mindfulness Group for us on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays every month from 10.00am until 12 noon.
Do come along and relax with us - it should be beneficial to you.

NEW GROUP - FAMILY HISTORY (Genealogy)
The Committee are very pleased to announce that our member, Peter Bennett, has started his new Family History (Genealogy) Group.
This Group meets on the 2nd and 4th Monday of each month at 1.30 to 3pm at the "Hut" so please support Peter and join in.
Would you like to know more about your ancestors? Where they lived, how they lived, where they worked? Learn your family's history and maybe uncover some secrets? Why not join the Family History Group, share knowledge and techniques and benefit from mutual support. You never know, you could find that you are related to Royalty!!
Please contact Wendy, our Groups Co-ordinator, for any further details. Thank you.

AND ANOTHER NEW GROUP - RELAXATION and COLOURING
Also our Committee are very pleased that Pam Ashton is leading this Group.
The Group meets on the 1st Friday of every month at 1.30 to 3pm.
This could be a very relaxing and stress-free interlude every month in your otherwise busy life. Do give it a try.
Once again, contact Groups Co-Ordinator, Wendy, for any further details. Thank you

And yet ANOTHER NEW GROUP !!!
Having started on MONDAY NOVEMBER 12th 2018, from 10.30am until 12 noon, and then on the 2nd Monday of each month, Peter Thorn is leading a new PHILOSOPHY Group.
There will be lots of interesting topics and questions to explore: e.g. What is it to live a moral life? How should we live with each other? How can film and art help us explore some of our questions. You may have other topics and questions too. Come as you are, with or without academic background. We will learn together.
Please support Peter and come along for a good exchange of views. Thank you
