Open day for U3A

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

A FUN and in­for­ma­tive group for re­tired peo­ple is hold­ing an open cof­fee morn­ing to re­cruit new mem­bers.

The Mac­cles­field Ru­ral U3A for re­tired and semi-re­tired peo­ple has around 500 mem­bers who, in ad­di­tion to monthly talks at Mem­bers’ Morn­ings, can par­tic­i­pate in over 40 in­ter­est and ac­tiv­ity groups in­clud­ing read­ing, lan­guages, science and tech­nol­ogy, crafts and a range of out­door ac­tiv­i­ties such as walk­ing and bowls.

They re­cently en­joyed an en­ter­tain­ing talk from gui­tarist Neil Smith for the fi­nal talk of the group’s 2014/15 pro­gramme.

Neil re­counted his ex­pe­ri­ences of play­ing for celebri­ties such as the Queen Mother and El­iz­a­beth Tay­lor, and meet­ing a par­ti­san war-hero in Greece. His talk was punc­tu­ated with ap­pro­pri­ate guitar pieces which had many in the au­di­ence foot-tap­ping.

The cof­fee morn­ing is on Mon­day, Septem­ber 7, from 10am un­til mid­day at the Sal­va­tion Army Hall in Mac­cles­field.
