Are science and technology areas that interest you. If so you might like to touch base with this new group that is being introduced by Randall Williams. All you need to have is an interest and a desire to discuss this interest with like minded people.
A new group has been set up to learn and play Canasta. It’s a great mix of skill and luck.
It’s summertime so, braving all the weather forecasts, we’ll be holding another open-air event in the Meadows in Tavistock on August 17 instead of our usual indoor meeting in the Town Hall. Be ready for rain or sunshine!
We’ll provide tea, coffee and soft drinks as well as sandwiches (carnivores, herbivores and omnivores catered for). As with last year’s party in the park, we invite you to bring a sample of your favourite homemade cake(s); last year we had a magnificent spread of wonderful cakes and we’re hoping for this again.
We have space for 100 members so if you would like to attend you will need to register in advance. Please text Jane Ward or email her at email@example.com by 1st August.
MORE INFORMATION ON PARTY IN THE PARK
If you are interested in getting out and exploring local history, whether its about tin mining, old rocks, buildings or farming this might be the group for you. Read in more detail on the groups webpage.
Thanks go as usual to the Events Committee and particular to Norma Woodcock in organising and guiding the u3a holiday to Cardiff.
Enjoy this video of their visit.
The July and September meetings are now on the website although further information will follow on the details of the talk in September.
Please note there is NO meeting at the town hall as we will be celebrating out 20th Anniversary in the Park.
Following on from the last talk on Climate Change I thought I would share with you the comments which our June speaker, Brenda Ainsley, sent to me in response to my e-mail to her following her very interesting talk.
“[Brenda’s husband] John and I were saying afterwards, what a well-informed and interesting group of people you are down in Tavy. We thought it was really encouraging that many of your members were either already engaged in doing something positive, or wanted to know how to. It is notable how in the couple of years I have been making this presentation up and down the land, people are increasingly well clued-up and definitely more interested in the whole Climate Change issue and what some of the solutions are, It is very rare that I get a ‘doubter’.”
Special congratulations must go to Margaret Garton who actually produced copies of the two books mentioned by Brenda during the talk whilst it was still in progress. Very impressive!
I hope fairly shortly to make a start on the 2023 speaker programme. I have taken on board a number of comments from the recent member survey in particular the suggestion that we should have a wider variety of topics. I do have quite a list of potential speakers, many thanks to input from members. However, further suggestions are always welcome.
