Weekenders’ Group

The September to December Weekenders’ programme has been posted on the U3A website so please contact me if you are interested in our events. We like to organise a Lunch, a Social Evening, an Outing and a Coffee Club get together each month, plus any other events we might be interested in.

Ruth Houldsworth kindly hosted a Cheese & Wine evening on 6th October and on 13th October we lunched once again at Encounters in Nottingham – another favourite venue for us.

We had an outing to Dobbies at Barlborough on 26th October, a Book/CD/DVD swap at Coffee Club on 27th October, and a late night shopping event at Crabtree & Evelyn on 1st November.

Then our November Social Evening will be a Winter Warmer at the home of Joyce Crane on the 10th and our November lunch will be at The Broomhill on 18th. We shall be attempting to make a Christmas craft item at our 24th November Coffee Club session. We shall end the month by getting even more into the festive frame of mind with an outing with Christmas Lunch and entertainment at Thoresby Hall on 29th.

Our programme is on the U3A website for further information. To contact Sandra, the group leader, please use the form below:-

Please contact me if you are interested in our events. We like to organise a Lunch, a Social Evening, an Outing and a Coffee Club get together each month, plus any other events we might be interested in.

In September we had a Fish & Chip Supper at Sandra’s, followed by a Bus-Pass Day Out to Newark and then lunch at the Flaming Grill, Hucknall. Sandra Green also held a Macmillan Coffee Morning instead of the usual Coffee Club on 29th September. Ruth Houldsworth is kindly hosting a Cheese & Wine evening on 6th October and on 13th October we have lunch booked at Encounters in Nottingham – another favourite venue for us.

We plan an outing to Dobbies at Barlborough on 26th October, a Book/CD/DVD swap at Coffee Club on 27th October, a late night shopping event at Crabtree & Evelyn on 1st November. Then our November Social Evening will be a Winter Warmer at the home of Joyce Crane on the 10th and hopefully our November lunch will be at The Broomhill on 18th November.

Weekenders’ activities

Thanks to the lovely summer weather we had two Afternoon Teas in members’ gardens in August; many thanks to Margaret White and Jean Martin. We had a Derbyshire Tour outing (with lunch of course!) on 17th August and we had Sunday lunch at Ciao Bella, Mansfield on 12th August. We had a fun filled Coffee Club session on 25th August and planned our next four months’ activities.

The September to December Weekenders programme will be posted on the U3A website so please contact me, using the form below, if you are interested in our events. We like to organise a Lunch, a Social Evening, an Outing and a Coffee Club get together each month, plus any other events we might be interested in.

Weekenders’ August activities

The September to December Weekenders programme will be discussed at the August Coffee Club & Programme Planning on Saturday, 25th August and then will be posted on the U3A website so please contact me if you are interested in our events. Also do you have any good ideas for our future events? We like to organise a Lunch, a Social Evening, an Outing and a Coffee Club get together each month, plus any other events we might be interested in so all new ideas are welcome.

In July we lunched at Bella Mia, Hucknall, which was not crowded at all due to England playing Sweden! Our outing to Bakewell & Peak Village on Monday 16th July was very successful too. Lindsay Smith hosted our July Social Evening with a “Schools Out For Summer” theme when we all received our lunch in a paper bag together with our “Annual Reports”! Our Coffee Club talked about our strangest holiday souvenirs. Just for July this was held at the Nabb Inn.

We are planning a Derbyshire Tour outing (with lunch of course!) on 17th August and a Social Afternoon Tea at the home of Margaret White on 4th August. Coffee Club will be back at my house on 25th August.
