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.

This group is now full but if anyone is interested in a Weekenders Too! Group, please let the Groups’ Co-ordinator, Siobhan Lee, know when between us we could start a second group.

We all enjoyed our trip to the Blue Diamond Garden Centre/Retail outlet on 6th December and our Broomhill Christmas lunch on 10th December when we also celebrated birthdays for Ruth Houldsworth and Carol Huggett.

We shall end the year with Coffee Club & 2020 Programme Planning on 28th December. There will be two birthday Broomhill lunches for Sandra Green and Doreen Newton on 3rd and 10th January. The programme will be on the Weekenders’ website in late January. Time flies when you’re having fun!!

Places are limited for all events so group members please contact Sandra Green, on the form below, if you wish to have your names put down for events in January to April. Please note that places for outings must be paid for before the event. Many thanks.

November started off with a Bus Pass Day Out to Southwell Minster Craft Fayre on the 2nd but the outing to Derby Craft Market at The Roundhouse on the 9th was unsuccessful as the floods caused diversions and traffic jams, which meant by the time we arrived the queue stretched all round the building and we would have been standing in the cold for an hour, so our driver kindly dropped us off at the INTU Eagle Shopping Centre (which suited many of us) and which proved to be far more impressive than the Nottingham City Centre shops.

On 16th November we had a “Winter Warmer” Social Evening at Sandra Green’s home, with jacket potatoes & cheese plus hot apple pie and custard. This was followed by a very funny “Would I Lie To You” session, which proved how good some of us were at telling a tale or two! We had a lunch at Keycraft Garden Centre, Hucknall, on 22nd November and on 26th November we had a “Broomhlll Birthday” lunch for June Flint. Our Coffee Club on 30th November hosted a Craft stall for doing a bit of pre-Christmas shopping.

We are all looking forward to our trip to the Blue Diamond Garden Centre/Retail outlet on 6th December and our Christmas lunch on 10th December. We shall end the year with Coffee Club & 2020 Programme Planning on 28th December. Time flies when you’re having fun!!

Places are limited for all events; in fact, many are full already, so group members please contact Sandra Green, on the form below, if you wish to have your names put down for events in October to December. Please note that places for outings must be paid for before the event. Many thanks.

We had a nice Broomhill Birthday lunch for Anita Lingard on the 18th October followed next day with a Social Evening at Lindsay Smith’s with a “Musical” theme. After a tasty buffet, we had an hilarious game of Musical Bingo with clues about songs from the Fifties to the Eighties.

We had an outing to Welbeck Abbey on 4th October and a lovely lunch at Yamas in Nottingham on 12th October. October ended with a Coffee Club session on 26th October with a “Winter Memories” theme and another Broomhill Birthday for Lindsay Smith.

November starts off with a Bus Pass Day Out to Southwell Minster Craft Fayre on the 2nd and an “Our Bus” outing to Derby Craft Market at The Roundhouse on the 9th.

The Weekenders programme for group members for September to December was posted on the U3A website last month. 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. This group is now full but if anyone is interested in a Weekenders Too! Group, please let the Groups’ Co-ordinator, Siobhan Lee, know when between us we could start a second group.

We have lunched several times at The Broomhill to celebrate group members’ birthdays and have already booked our October and November birthday lunches, plus our Christmas Lunch on 10th December.

Sandra used the September Coffee Club as a fundraiser for Macmillan and the 21st September Social Evening was hosted by Margaret White with a “Cruise Night” theme; we dressed appropriately in our cruise finery and competed in a “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire” and “Guess the Famous Landmarks” quiz. Many thanks to Margaret White for hosting.

The 19th October Social Evening will be at Lindsay Smith’s with a “Musical” theme. We are also having an outing to Welbeck Abbey on 4th October and a lunch at Yamas in Nottingham on 12th October. We will end October with a Coffee Club session on 26th October with a “Winter Memories” theme.

Places are limited for all events; in fact many are full already, so group members please contact Sandra Green, on the form below, if you wish to have your names put down for events in October to December:-
