Web News – Reminder

For various reasons there seems to be confusion over where to send emails with information to be posted on the website.
This is for all members to use if for instance you would like to comment on an activity you have taken part in in one of our various groups, or you may have information about a local event that is not part of our U3A, we have a page on our website for these local events.
We would love to see more reviews about our activities, it only takes a few minutes and other members and non members are interested in seeing what you have to say. The email address is:-

Thank you

Walking for Pleasure

Walking 4 Pleasure are meeting at 10am Tuesday (12th November), Cenotaph, Bolsover to go for a walk round Clumber Park Lake. Will be a bit mucky but paths are reasonable so not expecting it to be too bad. Should be very colourful at this time of year, so will need camera.

As this is a National Trust Park, you will all need to bring your NT card.

If this walk proves impossible due to the recent weather, we will find an alternative.

Amendment to previous email


This event is in CASTLETON, Hope Valley, Derbyshire

Not Castletown which I believe is in the Isle of Man!!!

An afternoon in Castletown, enjoy the attractive Christmas Lights & Decorated Shops.
Followed by an early evening singalong to carols led by the Castletown Silver Band in the mouth of the famous “Devil’s Arse” Cavern.
Concession Tickets are £11.50. Will need to pay and book in advance.
Please respond to chair

Dear Beverley,

Welcome to the October Newsletter.

We are very excited to be working towards the Development Plan in the coming year. U3A day is one of the first opportunities for U3As to be involved and we are delighted that many of you have put June 3rd 2020 into your diaries already.

We have also agreed the next phase of the Beacon membership management programme and you will be hearing about how you can get involved with this programme over the coming months. We would be very interested in hearing from any U3As that were involved in the International Day of Older Persons in your area or Silver Sunday.

Finally do tell us about any unusual interest groups or activities in your U3A, we are always looking to share your inspirational ideas.

With regards,
Sam Mauger
Chief Executive
