Wollaton u3a Update

What is u3a? It is a Charitable organisation established for people no longer in full time employment, or having responsibility for children, who wish to expand their interests in a friendly social group environment.
The lifeblood of u3a is the Interest Groups; Wollaton currently has 24 active groups, many with vacancies, covering a wide variety of interests from Art Appreciation to Whist. We are always looking for new ideas for groups, so if you have a special interest and would like to expand it with others, let us know and we will try to form a group of like-minded members.
To find out more about Wollaton u3a join us for a cup of coffee at Grangewood Methodist Hall on the first Friday monthly at 11.00am. (free to non-members for their first visit)

Our 3rd June Coffee morning will be a celebration of the Queen’s Jubilee with a member leading us in singing songs from the last 70 years, together with a light hearted quiz on the Queen. COME AND JOIN US.

“Speaker” meetings are held on 4th Tuesday monthly in St. Leonard’s Community Centre. Coffee available from 9.45 a.m. with the formal meeting starting at 10.15 to allow for buses to arrive.

24th May             Stephen Flinders will talk about Catherine Crompton’s Diary.

28th June            A speaker on Inheritance Tax, Care Costs and Sideway Disinheritance.

26th July              Lucy Brouwer will talk on Watson Fothergill the architect who designed so many interesting buildings in the Greater Nottingham area.
