The guitar group were invited to play a gig at Oxton U3A on 6th June (D-day). It was very well attended and the audience seemed to appreciate their efforts. They played a one hour set, seventeen in all, varying from The Beatles to The Everleys to The Traveling Wilburys.

Although they are not charged for using the room at Atherton Court for practice, they have always made a weekly voluntary donation and out of this the residents have recently bought a smart television for their main lounge. The group were delighted to learn that their donations have been sufficient to pay for the tv for all the residents of Atherton Court to enjoy

Powis Castle and Gardens

The date of the Powis Castle and Gardens visit has now been confirmed as Wednesday, 26th June, leaving Earlston Road Library at 9.15 am.

Please let Jean know if you are unable to come on this date and we will refund you your deposit at the next meeting. If we don’t have too many cancellations the cost of the coach will be £10 with entrance for non-National Trust members £12.

Could you also please confirm whether or not you are a National Trust member. I only have 5 at the moment – Graham and Yvonne Clayton, Irene and Jim Culshaw and Rodney Melbourne. The National Trust wish to know numbers before we go.

Spanish Classes

David Mee is hoping to be able to run a Spanish language class later this year. This will not happen for several weeks because of David’s other commitments including his work as an A level Spanish oral examiner which means he will be visiting schools in different parts of the country during April and May.

If you are already a U3A member contact me, David, at the monthly meeting, otherwise forward your details, mentioning your interest, via the enquiry form on the Contact Page.
