Defibrillation and CPR Training

Ladies of the “God” Group enjoyed an interesting and very informative training session on the use of a defibrillator and CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation).
It has been suggested that the men’s ‘Grumpy’ groups also attend a session – watch this space!

“Escape from a Room”

“Escape from a Room”
There were ten of us ready to decipher codes and various clues at Cryptology, we did however become a bit nervous as we climbed the staircase which had chains and bludgeons etc. on the wall!
We split into two groups, one The Crypt the other Cypherdyne for 60mins intense pressure trying to beat the clock and complete the tasks, can it be done? Mm why don’t you try it?
It was great fun and we would go again. They are moving to a new bigger venue in Nottingham in February with fresh ideas.

Why not try Adventure before Dementia

This is a group for like-minded people who wish to do something slightly outside the box, which will include physical and mental abilities.
Where possible we will make use of Groupon and Wowchers etc. so if anyone is aware of an offer and would like to participate in a particular activity, please let me know and I will advise everyone on the list to give them chance to purchase them also.
To date we have had an indoor sky diving experience, rode on a Segway, climbed the Skytrail at Holme Pierrepont, been on a chocolate making course and are about to “escape from a room”.
There won’t be an activity every month, and not everyone will want to participate in whatever is on offer however, if you would like to be advised of any future events please let me know. Marguerite

Escape Room Adventure

I am arranging an “escape from a room adventure”, escaping from the room within 60 minutes after deciphering codes, solving puzzles and various clues.
It takes place in one of the rooms in a building near the Market Square Nottingham. (near ‘The Works’)
There are two rooms to pick, Cypherdene and The Crypt. If anyone is interested please contact me on the form below.

U3A Adventurers Try the Sky Trail

Adventure Before Dementia
Five intrepid adventurers visited Holme Pierrepont Adventure Park this month to try out the Sky Trail. We all had varying degrees of success with three of our members skipping about on the top layer like squirrels. Even though a couple of us did not make it to the top properly we all had a good time. We now have to decide what to do next month. Any suggestions are welcome.
