STOURBRIDGE U3A support their town in the Britain in Bloom competition

our Stourbridge in Bloom team who, along with other volunteer groups, have worked extremely hard to help achieve a GOLD medal for our town in the Heart of England in Bloom competition 2019. (Their trendy t-shirts were part funded by U3A National Office, so thank you very much.)

Also is a photograph of some of our Canal Interest group members litter picking whilst walking along the Smethwick/Galton bridge canal recently. The Canal and River Trust were very grateful for their efforts.

These are just two examples of how Stourbridge members are working to improve our local community and environment



Timewise Traveller - A History of People and World Events 1066 - 1901


This unique work by Derek J.P Waldie covers not only political history but also – running alongside and in equal depth – the development of all the major disciplines, such as Literature, Music, the Visual Arts, the Sciences, Medicine, Philosophy, Exploration and Invention. And all these branches of knowledge can be isolated and placed in chronological order.

The Guide (via the Menu Page) explains how the traveller makes his or her way through the eight hundred turbulent but highly formative years from the Norman Conquest to the death of Queen Victoria. If, hopefully, you find the work of sufficient value, please let your students know that it can be researched free of charge. I am hoping that, apart from using it as a general reference, they will come to understand, by travelling through history, the wider sense of that word: a chronological appreciation of mankind’s development over the entire range of human endeavour.
