Ross on Wye & District

Groups

Our leisure and social groups are run by members and reflect the interests of our current membership.

Groups meet in local and community halls such as the Larruperz, or they may meet at members' homes. They mostly meet on a monthly basis though some are fortnightly or weekly.

Each group has a co-ordinator who might have some knowledge of the subject being considered but learning experience is one of shared experience of the subject.

A small charge is made by some groups, for example for materials, for tickets to the theatre or gardens, or perhaps towards the hire of a room.

Whilst every effort is made to accommodate new members to groups, it must be stressed that before joining Ross U3A, if your sole purpose is to join a particular group, it is advisable to check whether that group can accommodate new members. By the nature of some groups they are restricted to room size (if held at a members' house), number in teams (ie scrabble - bridge) etc. However DO NOT LET THIS PUT YOU OFF as we are always willing to accept suggestions as to how to increase group size; even if this means creating a second group or hiring a suitable room. Also, it is important to stress the many other advantages of joining Ross U3A - meeting and socialising at the Monthly Meetings and exploring the many other groups that currently exist. We look forward to meeting you.

New Group News

Canasta group has been disbanded for now. There is some interest in starting a Whist group. This would be held on a Tuesday morning, once or twice a month, depending on interest. There will be a sign up sheet at the next general meeting.
I have been asked by several people to try and set up a Line Dancing group. I am making enquiries about a possible co-ordinator, but in the meantime have started a sign-up list for anyone who may be interested. There will be a sign up sheet at the general meeting. Time and date can be decided according to what the majority want. We’re thinking along the lines (excuse the pun!) of a monthly ‘fun’ get together, with fairly easy steps to learn.
We are also offering the possibility of a Sewing group. Have you been inspired by the BBC’s Sewing Bee series, to resurrect your dress-making skills? This will be an opportunity to bring along a pattern, get help and advice about putting your garment together, insert zips and generally exchange ideas and the latest tips. An opportunity to dust off your sewing machine and put it to good use. Time and date to be decided – perhaps a Wednesday afternoon?? I have a willing co-ordinator. Now we need some interest. Sign up sheet at General meeting.
If you are at all interested in any of the above, and cannot attend the general meeting, please contact me direct and I will add you to the sign-up sheet.
Keep the suggestions coming for new groups!
Many thanks,
