PROPOSED NEW GROUPS

God's Amazing Book added 5/7/21

All details appear on a group page.

Quilting added 28.6.21

Do we have any u3a members who know how to do Quilting and would be willing to help others learn the
skill? If so, please contact the Groups co-ordinator to talk about the support we
can provide for offering interested and enthusiastic members a group to teach this interesting craft.

Walking cricket added 28.6.21

This is an adaption of the traditional game of cricket to suit those with less mobility. The Yorkshire
Cricket Foundation (YCF) recently announced the launch of the Yorkshire Walking Cricket Team and Barnsley u3a member Mac Mckechnie has been appointed Manager.

Mac previously recruited over 50 men and women to play for his local u3a team and has helped other walking cricket teams to set up across the country. The move has been welcomed by former International Cricket umpire Dickie Bird who commented “I’ve only recently found out about the fine work that the u3a is doing in partnership with YCF around walking cricket – what a marvellous idea!”

If some York u3a members are interested Mac would offer support for setting up a group. Email he Groups co-ordinator to express your interest.

Bridge for absolute beginners added 29.6.21

This group is for complete beginners, no prior knowledge will be assumed, and indeed attendees need never have seen a pack of cards. The course is the official EBU (English Bridge Union) course and consists of 30 lessons and will take about a year to complete (due to holidays) and will be limited to six students.  The course cannot start yet as we have only three students so if you are interested please contact Sam on 07752801488 or  sambridge@yorku3a.com

The Life and Keyboard Works of J S Bach added 31.8.21
