Weekenders’ Group

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. Lunches are open to all U3A members but Social Evenings, Outings and Coffee Club are limited to existing Weekender members only because of space limitations.

So far this year we have enjoyed Birthday Lunches at The Broomhill for Sandra Green and Christine Wheatley, and plan more in March and April for Joyce Crane, Pauline North, Kay Burton and Jean Martin. We had a lovely Social Evening at the home of Ruth Houldsworth on 9th February and an outing to Denby Pottery on 16th February.

The March Weekenders Coffee Club much appreciated the flower arranging demonstration by Siobhan Lee who showed us how to make four arrangements from a cheap bunch of flowers from the supermarket and foliage from the garden or hedgerow. Another good use for the U3A mug!

We plan a Sunday lunch at Arunothai in March and also an outing to the Blue Diamond Garden/Retail Centre at East Bridgford.

Our November Social Evening was a Winter Warmer at the home of Joyce Crane on the 10th and the Soup & Sandwich followed by Apple Pie & Cream was much appreciated. Many thanks to Joyce for hosting. Our November lunch was at The Broomhill on 18th. We made a Christmas craft item at our 24th November Coffee Club session and ended the month by getting even more into the festive frame of mind with an outing with Christmas Lunch and Panto at Thoresby Hall on 29th. This will be followed by an outing to the Blue Diamond Garden Centre at East Bridgford on 7th December followed by our Christmas Social Evening at Lindsay Smith’s on the 8th December, 2018.
