Do you live in or near Arnold, Nottingham? Are you retired or not in full time work and interested in taking up new activities/interests? If so, Arnoldu3a could be for you. New members are welcome.
Arnold u3a meets once a month for a general meeting with a topic or speaker, but the real strength of the organisation lies in the Interest Groups which are small, run by members and allow people with a common interest to meet together with the aim of learning from each other.
At present, we run about 50 Interest Groups which include Art, Board Games, Cinema, Cinema Visits, Classical Music, Craft, Discussion, Gardening & Garden Visits, Holidays, Lunch Group, Opera, Railway, Shakespeare and Theatre Visits. Future groups may include any topic that a few members wish to pursue.
Interest Groups are often started because of the interest of one or two members. They will arrange a short meeting at their home or other venue and invite others who may be interested. The Interest Group decides how, when and where they will meet and how large the group will be. Some, such as outings groups, may not meet formally at all. The co-ordinator of a group does not have to be an expert but will ensure that meetings happen and that group members are kept informed. Groups may be co-ordinated by a team.
Our new/prospective members’ meetings are starting again. They are held at the Friar Tuck pub (behind Arnold market) at 11.00 on the third Friday of each month. (Existing members also welcome.) . If you want to know more, please get in touch with either Pat Jackson or Jean Cussons. See the ‘Contact Us‘ page for their details.
