September - Wirksworth Festival
Following the success of last years exhibition the Photography group exhibited again at this year's Wirksworth Festival.
They used the wedding suite at Haarlem Mill.
25 members showcased 60 photos with further number being shown on a rolling screen.
There were a variety of positive comments from visitors which were documented in a note book.

The photography group are very grateful to Mike Lewis (coordinator) for his inspiration and enthusiasm in leading the exhibition and for all his hard work in organising it.

Wirksworth and District U3A is going from strength to strength. So far we have 24 interest groups with an appetite for more.
A number of new groups are now up and running, but may still have some spare places.
Please see the Groups page for any group you may wish to join.
If a group is full, do not let that put you off as multiple groups can be formed.

A new TABLE TENNIS group is to be launched in September with a qualified coach acting as coordinator.
June welcomes all members, whatever your standard or ability to join her on alternate Thursday afternoons at The Maltings.
For further information please see click on the above link or contact June via the bluebird on the web page

There has been interest shown in the following groups but so far no one has offered to coordinate them.
Maybe you would like to link up with another person and run a group jointly.
A coordinators role should be simply that, and not be expected to come up with all the ideas or indeed organise them all. All group members should contribute to the running of the group.

Suggested groups are;

If you would like to coordinate one of these groups please contact Jeanie Howard , Interest group secretary, on the contact page.
