OPEN DAY

A GROUP for re­tired and semi-re­tired peo­ple is look­ing for new mem­bers.

The Mac­cles­field Ru­ral U3A group has around 500 mem­bers who hold reg­u­lar meet­ings and take part in a va­ri­ety of so­cial ac­tiv­i­ties.

They have monthly talks at Mem­bers’ Morn­ings and can par­tic­i­pate in more than 40 in­ter­est and ac­tiv­ity groups.

These in­clude read­ing, lan­guages, science and tech­nol­ogy, crafts and a range of out­door ac­tiv­i­ties such as walk­ing and bowls.

As part of a drive to re­cruit new mem­bers they are hold­ing an open cof­fee morn­ing on Mon­day, Septem­ber 7, from 10am un­til mid­day. It will take place at the Sal­va­tion Army Hall on Roe Street to show­case all the ac­tiv­i­ties and to gen­er­ate ideas for new groups.

Any­one is welcome to at­tend the event and find out more.
