Enjoy your 'third age'
Are you past full-time employment and don't know what to do with yourself? It is never too late to broaden your horizons and learn new things, or just to have fun and enjoy tourself together with like-minded people. You may even have knowledge and experiences that you would like to share with others for mutual benefit. If you recognise yourself in one or more of these categories, then Redbridge & District u3a may just be the place for you. Join us and enjoy your 'third age'.
Interest groups - the centre of u3a
Our interest groups are the nucleus of our activities. They are all led by members and cover a wide range of subjects from yoga to quizzes; from art appreciation to pub lunches; from psychology to music; and almost everything in between. Group meetings are in the daytime, often in the group leader's home, and for larger groups in hired halls. During lockdown, many groups are continuing on internet platforms like Zoom. Visit our Groups page to see which groups are active at the moment.
Open Meetings for all members
Once a month, generally on the last Monday of the month, we invite all our members to an Open Meeting where you can socialise with other members, have a coffee or tea and a biscuit, and listen to a variety of interesting and entertaining speakers. At the moment, the Open Meetings also take place on Zoom. The next one will be on Monday 28th June where Nick Dobson will talk about The History of the Tulip. See the coming months' programme on our Open Meetings page.
Ice, Fire and Other Evocations
is the title of our member Hugh Noble's next presentation of photos, music, poetry and prose. All members are invited to join on Thursday 1st July at 8.00 pm on Zoom. The link to join will be e-mailed to members in advance.
Getting Back into the Swing!
