Discussion2 - 2nd & 4th Weds 2.15 - 4pm

We started Discussion2 group in September 2017.

PLEASE NOTE -
DISCUSSION2 meetings are 2ND and 4TH WEDNESDAY AFTERNOONS, since New Year 2018

Meetings start at 2.15pm for coffee/tea/signing-in, and the discussion is at 2.30 until 4pm.

Future topics should be available on the right, when planned sufficiently in advance, when the leader remembers to alter the website...

We have a selection of moral dilemmas, culled from the internet, to fill the gaps - see on the right of this page

We hold the Discussion2 meetings at Barton Court

see below

The driveway is nearly opposite to Morrison's entrance, about 20 yards further into town than Morrison's, on the left, just after the bollards on the crossing-island in the middle of the road.

Members can park in Morrison's, or on the driveway of Barton Court if you have walking difficulties.
If you are coming on the bus, number 41 runs Cheltenham - A38 Gupshill - Tewkesbury Roses Theatre - Morrisons's - Ashchurch Railway - Northway, then in reverse.

The Barton Court building is wheelchair friendly, and the meeting room is spacious, light, airy, and pleasant, with comfortable high armchair seating and plenty of coffee tables. We shall thus conform to the requirements of the U3A to be accessible to all.

Approach the building in the centre, at Door 2 [see the Googlemaps street view below] where there is a door which should be locked at all times.

It would be good if the first arrivers were to volunteer to do "door duty" to allow in the other members of the group.

There is a small kitchen where we can make coffee/tea, and the Group leader or ANOther will bring the tea and coffee and milk.
If you want juice or squash, or bottled water, please bring your own.

Initially, Carol will lead the new group Discussion2 until another member is willing to take over the leadership.

Carol will deal with the website entry for the new group until she leaves the group.
 
From the beginning, someone will be required to chair each meeting, until a decision is made to have two separate functions, or to roll the leader and chair into one, after Carol leaves the group.

Members of the original Discussion/Current Affairs Group may also join Discussion2 if they wish.

Carol will be suggesting topics for Discussion2 initially, but of course any subject of interest to members will be used in preference.
As there may be several members of the original Discussion/CA attending, to get their "fix" of discussion if they are unable to attend the original group sometimes, we shall try to have different topics from those of the original group.

Normally, all will be welcome at Carol's house for a December meeting. However, in Dec 2019 Carol will be missing - so you are instead invited for the 11th January 2020 meeting.

And lastly - or should it be first? see the Links on the right >>>>> for suggested topics to get us started.
Does anyone want to volunteer to start us off with a little background research?
OR - Just pick any favourite topic to introduce to the group...
