The John Godber Centre Open Day

The event took place on 22nd August, 2021 from 11am to 2pm. It coincided with the first Ashfield Food and Drink Festival in the town centre which helped to draw in more visitors especially later in the afternoon.

The photos show the display created by our volunteers that drew the attention of those visitors who were prompted to ask questions about the organisation and take away some information about membership.

Christmas at Hucknall u3a

This year we were ‘Dreaming of a Zoom Christmas’

Unable to hold our annual Christmas social event we had a ‘Christmas Spectacular’ via Zoom on the 9th December.

The programme featured a festive quiz, host Terry Hill with his Bumper Book of (old) Jokes , Christmas themed poems, a recording of our last year’s 10 minute pantomime ‘Cinderella’ and a finale of two songs live from the living room of The Rockin Rev Duo, the Rev Ian and Ann Murray.

It was wonderful to see and hear a live performance – thanks Ian and Ann.Many members were in full Christmas livery and enjoyed each other’s virtual company accompanied by a drink and party snack.

We also had a Christmas film via Zoom, an enjoyable Dad’s Army feature followed by ‘Miracle on 34th Street’ on the 17th December.

Hopefully and optimistically our next year’s events will be real meetings in person.
