Weekenders April Plans

The events organised by either the Lunch Group or the Weekenders Group are open to all U3A members, regardless of whether they are regulars or not. Obviously places are sometimes limited so it’s first come, first served; I should be grateful if you could let me know if you are interested in these events as soon as possible so that I can let other members know if I have places left.

What a dreadful March it has been with the weather affecting our events; we had to cancel our St. Patrick’s Day Social Evening and also our trip to Bakewell but our Coffee Club will be on the 31st when our topic of conversation will be our Travelling Tales.

We are having a trip to Dobbies and Peak Village on Saturday, 14th April and this is now full. We may possibly be having an April Social Evening but this is not yet confirmed and our next Coffee Club & Programme Planning will be on 28th April.

We had an excellent Sunday lunch at Ciao Bella, Mansfield on 4th February followed by a Games Night at Pam Farrell’s on 10th February and our Coffee Club on 24th February when we exchanged our Valentine’s stories. Unfortunately we had to cancel our lunch at the Horse & Groom, Moorgreen due to the snow. We have also cancelled The Countryman lunch due to lack of transport.
We are having a St. Patrick’s Day themed Social Evening on 17th March and an outing to Bakewell on the 19th March. Our March Coffee Club will be on the 31st when our topic of conversation will be our Travelling Tales.

Weekenders' Jan/Feb Report

The events organised by either the Lunch Group or the Weekenders Group are open to all U3A members, regardless of whether they are regulars or not. Obviously places are sometimes limited so it’s first come, first served; I should be grateful if you could let me know if you are interested in these events as soon as possible so that I can let other members know if I have places left.
On Saturday, 30th December the Coffee Club met when we planned our next four months’ events. We dined at Arunothai on Saturday lunchtime, 13th January and had a Social Evening at Margaret White’s home when we had a second session of “Would I Lie To You” which again proved how good we were at fibbing! The January Coffee Club was on 27th when we heard some hilarious Pets’ Tales (or tails if you like).
We plan a Sunday lunch at Ciao Bella, Mansfield on 4th February and are very much looking forward to that.

We had our Christmas Lunch at The Royal Oak, Watnall on 9th December. Unfortunately they were planning a charity evening for that night and consequently they were in and out of the pub which meant we were rather draughty! The food however was very good indeed although again, because they were so busy, the service was a little slow.
We didn’t plan any other events for December (apart from a small group of us who got together on Boxing Day at The Nabb Inn) as it is such a busy time of year. However our Coffee Club is on Saturday, 30th December when we will be planning our next four months’ events. Hopefully we may be dining at Arunothai on Saturday lunchtime, 13th January so if you are interested, please get in touch.

We had our November lunch at The Roebuck, Nottingham, followed by Irish Music at The Malt Cross on Sunday, 5th November. Our November Social Evening was at Sandra’s on 11th November when we had many laughs.
Our November outing was to Chocfest at Melton Mowbray on Saturday, 18th November. Although it was very cold (the stalls were in the open air but roof-covered Cattle Market) there were some very interesting food items to try and many chocolate feasts to buy. Our November Coffee Club was on 25th November when we made Christmas trees from paperback books. We are going to The Royal Oak at Watnall for our Christmas lunch on 9th December.
