Weekenders’ Programme

2019 Weekenders Programme May-August – Weekenders’ events include a lunch, coffee club, outing and social evening, each once a month plus any other events which appeal to us.

I should be grateful if a member who has not hosted a social evening before might like to volunteer; it’s not a lot of work for the hostess, just provide a lounge and tea and coffee.

Please let me know as soon as possible if you want to put your name down for any of these events. First come, first served!

Weekenders’ Group

The Weekenders programme for January to April is 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.

We met for lunch at Arunothai in March and had a Social Evening at the home of Pauline North where our discussions on a wide range of topics kept us there until 11.30 pm. Our outing for March was to Blue Diamond Garden Centre at East Bridgford. Our Coffee Club discussed Family Tales at the end of March.

In April we plan a lunch at Riverside Farm (near the River Trent), an outing to Lea Gardens and Masson Mills, a Fish & Chip Supper at Sandra Green’s and Programme Planning for the next four months at our Coffee Club at the end of April. Places are limited at all events but please contact Sandra, using the form below, if you wish to have your names put down for 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. 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.
