Woodstock

Events 2020 - Apr 2021

Great News!!!!
Woodstock and District U3A are open for business again.
Whilst we are still unable to meet in person, we are now able to offer a full programme of Speaker Talks online via Zoom. All the talks will start at 2pm.

The September talk was a fascinating lecture on Bees and it was lovely to ‘see’ so many people joining and thoroughly enjoying the session. In October Katrina van Grouw, ornithologist, artist and author, spoke about her fascinating life and the books she has written. In November Shona Kennedy, a Nutritionist, gave an interesting and enlightening talk about The Gut.

Zoom can be used on any PC or tablet with internet connection. It is very straightforward to join a Zoom meeting and any Member of the Committee would be very happy to give advice if required.
We look forward to 'seeing' you at the next meeting.

Meetings
Tue Feb 2nd Hardit Singh Malik: The Flying Sikh - Stephen Barker
From his arrival in the UK alone in 1908 as a fourteen year old, to Balliol College, Oxford and into the Royal Flying Corps during the First World War, Hardit Singh Malik lived an extraordinary life, often in the face of great adversity. He is best known for being a fighter pilot during 1917-19, coming up against the Red Baron and the British military establishment.
This illustrated presentation lasts for 50 minutes and includes several film clips.
Tue Mar 2nd A Jewish Childhood; Bagels & Bacon - Jeff Rozelaar
An autobiographical account of growing up in the Post War East End. The book, upon which the talk is based, was described by Fern Britton as “A hugely entertaining book …. A great sudsy wallow in the 1950’s”. The delivery is a lively and entertaining mixture of Jewish and cockney humour.
Tue Apr 6th Claydon House: 'Now you see it, now you don't" - Christine Cox
Christine gives the background of the Verney family which leads to the 2nd Earl Verney who built the part you visit with the National Trust. He extended Claydon as we know it, but that part was later demolished . It’s an amazing story with lots of interior scenes.
