|Meeting Day||1st or 2nd Tuesday|
|Location||Abbot Hall Social Centre|
This group met successfully for the first time on 7 May, 2019 with 21 participants. We were able to plan the first few meetings, as shown in the programme.
We meet in Abbot Hall Social Centre, at 10.00 a.m. on either the first or second Tuesday of each month; dates and programmes will be publicised on the U3A website.
It is likely that we shall enjoy both brief lectures from a speaker with particular knowledge of or interest in a given field, followed by discussion and questions, as well as visits to places of architectural interest both locally and further afield.
We are a friendly group and shall welcome newcomers.
