Weekenders’ 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. Our October to December programme will be on the U3A website before the monthly meeting.

We had a day trip to Leicester on September 15th; some went to the Richard III Exhibition, others went to churches and museums; most went shopping in the High Cross Centre and lunched at High Cross Inn (Wetherspoons). One of us was very successful in obtaining her marrows from Leicester Market (she couldn’t get any in Nottingham) so she was piccalilli-making on her return home.

We had a lovely Cheese & Wine Party at Whyburn Court with our host being Ruth Houldsworth, on September 23rd. We then met for Coffee Club and Programme Planning on September 30th. The events list for the next three months will be on the noticeboard and on the website.

Weekenders Witness Domestic Abuse in Skegness!

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. Our July to September programme is on the U3A website.

10th August saw sixteen of us enjoying lovely sunshine and fish & chips in Skegness with Lindsay Smith and Peggy Cooke winning the “Skegness Is So Bracing!” quiz.

Unfortunately I witnessed totally disgusting behaviour when a man and a woman were arguing in front of a load of kids and then she smacked him on the head and it all kicked off between them. A policeman turned up and he ended up using his baton on the bloke but the man actually managed to get the baton off the copper and he then started hitting him and the woman with it…………then a crocodile turned up and stole the sausages!

Then nine of us set out in good spirits to travel to Belper by train on 12th August. We located Strutts Mill and the River Gardens before sampling the hospitality of the town centre. It was then the decision of the majority to explore the current use of the De Bradelei Mill (shopping outlet). The sun shone and there was no drizzle – from anyone.

Our next event was Sunday lunch at The Countryman in Nuncargate on 27th August with yet another lunch at Arunothai on 2nd September.

Again we had lovely weather for our trip to Lichfield Arts Festival on July 8th when Christine Wheatley and Anita Lingard won the Arts Bus Quiz. We met for lunch on July 22nd at The Tee House, Hucknall and our next Social Evening was at Lindsay Smith’s home on 5th August; many thanks Lindsay!

Although our umbrellas were going up and down like Jack In The Boxes we enjoyed Sunday lunch at Savile’s Restaurant, Rufford Abbey, on 4th June followed by a concert by Harworth Colliery Band in the Coach House Courtyard. We then had a Bus Pass Day Out to Loughborough on the 10th June and participated in the “Picnic in the Park” at Queen’s Park, Loughborough. On 24th June we had programme planning at our Coffee Club session and look forward to many events in the next three months. Our first event was a Garden Afternoon Tea on 1st July in Margaret White’s lovely garden when after a week of rain, the sun shone beautifully. A trip to Lichfield Arts Festival is planned for July 8th.
