News from the Weekenders’ group

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 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.

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.

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.

The Weekenders’ programme for September to December will be posted on the U3A website later this week so please contact me if you are interested in our events or if you have new suggestions for events etc. 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 lunched at The Riverside Farm on August 3rd, changed an outing to Stamford on August 9th, going to Dobbies at Chesterfield instead in view of the predicted bad weather and a few of us braved a trip to good old Skeggie on 22nd August.

Our Coffee Club meeting on 31st August was our Programme Planning session for September to December.

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 September to December.
