National Trust Update

There won’t be a National Trust outing in August as I won’t be available to take monies.

Two places for Hanbury Hall on 17 June have become available. Let me know if you are interested. The coach fare is £11.00.

There is also one place for Baddesley Clinton and Packwood House on 29 July. The coach fare is £10.00.

I would appreciate someone else or a team of people taking over the National Trust group from me as I am only prepared to continue arranging trips this year. I can offer my support to anyone wishing to take on the responsibility. It seems a shame that this group which has been so successful over the last ten years should fold.

Music Appreciation Group

I was sorry to learn today of the death of John Peters. John was the originator of the Hucknall U3A Pub Quiz Group and also the U3A Music Appreciation Group. He had great determination to overcome his medical problems and I know he will be much missed by his friends and family.

Music for Pleasure

The Music for Pleasure group met once again following a short suspension over the summer period. John Peters once again hosted an evening of music and entertaining discussion, with the usual break for refreshments during the evening.

John had chosen music from the 60’s for our entertainment, including songs from a variety of artists from the decade, followed by the Carpenters, whose songs, plus the unique voice of Karen Carpenter, still remain popular today. Then there were some more iconic sounds from Simon and Garfunkle.

We then proceeded to make arrangements for our group Christmas meal, which we will hold at the Nabb Inn. It’s good to know that John will be able to join us this year after being unable to do so last Christmas.

For our next meeting on 30th October it was suggested that we listen to some brass band music, which should prove a lively evening and a nice change from the Christmas carols which will no doubt have started playing in all the shops!

Music for Pleasure – 80th Birthday Celebration

The meeting of the Music for Pleasure Group this month was a celebration of the 80th birthday of one of our members, Jean. Our host, John, had chosen a suitable selection of music from each of the decades of Jean’s life, from the 30’s up to the present day. There was a diverse programme consisting of early jazz, popular music of the day and music from the musicals. Everyone enjoyed casting their mind back to the tunes they could remember, although many of us protested that they were ‘before our time’! We did have fun guessing the name of the performers though.

There was our, by now usual, interval spread of buffet food, which we all enjoyed as we presented Jean with gifts of flowers, cake, wine and an 80th birthday balloon!

Music for Pleasure

Tuesday November 28th was the date chosen for the Christmas party by the Music for Pleasure group. John, our host, chose a selection of Christmas music to accompany our usual mix of conversation and laughter. Everyone had brought a contribution to the buffet, and the table was loaded with festive goodies. Despite the small size of the group it could be said that everyone did justice to the meal, and there weren’t too many leftovers!
As December is such a busy month for most people, it was decided that the next group meeting will be on January 23rd, the music choice to be decided upon later.
Thanks, as always, to John, our host.
