Possible new group

History – The Birth of England and Scotland in the Dark Ages

The aim of this series of meetings is to tell the story of the emergence of England and the beginnings of a country that became Scotland.

The format would be an introductory talk and a Powerpoint display of a site or two which help to illuminate the Dark Ages. This would be followed by discussions and a question and answer session .

The idea is to bring together the personalities and the ‘events and deeds’ of this period and place them on a large mental-map. Most people will have heard of the Anglo-Saxon invasions, the Venerable Bede, Saint Columba and the coming of Christianity, but where do they fit in on the time-line? How are they connected? What about Ivor the Boneless (Viking king); Conall mac Comgaill (Dal Riatan king who allowed Columba to settle on Iona); Queen Aetheldreda (said to have remained a virgin despite marriages to a prince and a king); and King Offa, who built an amazing dyke? What about Arthur – was he involved somehow? How much havoc did the Vikings cause, and why? Then there is that other famous king - Alfred – didn’t he burn a cake or two?

If this sparks your interest and you would like to find out more about the group, please contact Mick
His email is mickabrahamson@yahoo.com

and his phone no. is 0115 846 3941.

Basic Group information

All groups are listed in the tables on this page. Some groups have their own individual timetables such as the bird watching group.
To join any group, contact the group leader first for full details of meetings and any personal equipment required.

Our u3a is always willing to consider additional groups and welcome suggestions for a topic which we may not currently run, especially if you have an interest in getting the group 'going'.

If you cannot find what you are interested in, in West Bridgford, maybe one of the other u3a's does have something.
Select the link (Groups across Nottinghamshire) and see what is available.

Advertising at open meetings

To attract new members or to inform your current members of what is happening in your group, group leaders are invited to advertise via the PowerPoint rolling display. The display runs continuously at the start of the Open Meeting and is a useful source of information for people whilst they have a seat and refreshment.
Sue has taken on the responsibility for delivering the information attractively to excite interest.
Send her details to get in the display via the BLUE BIRD
