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.

Tue Oct 5th DIVIDED BY A COMMON LANGUAGE?

David Grylls "British and American English"
Are you curious about the changes in our language? George Bernard Shaw said Britain and America were two countries "divided by a common language". A good line, but is it really true? Through an amusing and informative look at spelling, grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation, David Grylls looks at the truth of Shaw's statement.
