Discussion Group

Our U3A Discussion Group meets on the 4th Thursday afternoon of each month between 2.00 & 4.00pm. We as a Group select a range of Topics we feel will be interesting to discuss & develop our future Programme.

Topics covered in 2019 included in July “Weakness of Democracy …”; August “NHS Spending – Prioritise?...”; and in September “Surveillance…"

Do contact Ian Snelling - iansnelling@ciandev.co.uk - for any further information you may like to have.

Our most recent Discussion Group was on 28th November with the Topic …. "Lack of censorship in the media ….?” which was led by Shirley Ross.

Shirley’s comments that followed this Discussion … “In a meaningful discussion, the Group considered the high ratings which bring huge financial rewards to online ‘social media’ including Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, as well as to the other forms of media we have access to. These media organisations show scant regard for vulnerable viewers who can follow explicit details to self-harm, commit suicide or become groomed or radicalised. Governments must take action to rid us of this scourge”.

We are meeting for our “Welcome to 2020 New Year Lunch” on Thursday 16th January 2020.

Our first Discussion Group in 2020 is on Thursday 23rd January which will be led by John Cook. Now the Election has passed we are having a discussion on ….

“What do we think of the behaviour of Parliament over the last three years and what really is democracy?” …. We feel this may help in warming Us up in January!
