Yate & Sodbury District

Science and Technology

This is a new Group that has recently formed after an initial meeting deemed that there was enough interest to make it worthwhile. It was decided that the Group would meet approximately monthly when visits to local (and not so local) items of Science and Technology could be visited. These visits would alternate with the members presenting short talks themselves on things that interested them, these talks would be totally voluntary but were thought necessary as the U3A looks to enhance peoples' knowledge.

Some of the places that the members wanted to visit were:

  • Bromley Heath Viaduct
  • Aerospace Filton
  • Rolls Royce Heritage Centre
  • Dyson factory
  • Avonmouth Docks, etc

Members also said they could talk on such diverse subjects as:

  • Printing - several members had been in the printing trade
  • Brass musical instruments
  • Butterflies of Trinidad
  • Photography - and computer enhancements

So, if you are interested in being added to the list of members please email Garth Chatham at garthchatham@garthchatham.plus.com, or via the link on this page
