New­cas­tle Em­lyn U3A

Carmarthen Journal - - Living In: Community News -

THE Novem­ber meet­ing was very well at­tended and it was an­nounced that the U3A has now reached 100 mem­bers.

Sarah Went­worth came to speak to mem­bers about Art­s4well­be­ing in Ceredi­gion, which spe­cialises in cre­at­ing fully in­clu­sive ac­ces­si­ble train­ing de­signed to en­gage, in­spire and mo­ti­vate.

They sup­port and pro­mote emo­tional well­be­ing through a unique fu­sion of per­sonal de­vel­op­ment and cre­ativ­ity. They are a very active group in Ceredi­gion and hope to spread into Car­marthen­shire soon.

The De­cem­ber meet­ing will be held at the Com­mu­nity Hall in New­cas­tle Em­lyn on De­cem­ber 5 and will be an in­for­mal Christ­mas so­cial with fun ac­tiv­i­ties fol­lowed by a buf­fet Christ­mas lunch pro­vided by mem­bers.

The Jan­uary meet­ing will be on Wed­nes­day, Jan­uary 2, and the speaker will be chair­man Jim Si­b­ley, whose talk will be en­ti­tled ‘Through the Mi­cro­scope’. It is hoped two new groups will start in the new year. Th­ese will be a Span­ish con­ver­sa­tion group and a sci­ence-based group.

The newly-formed Welsh con­ver­sa­tion group is well at­tended and go­ing re­ally well. Monthly meet­ings usu­ally take place on the first Wed­nes­day of the month at 10.30am for 11am at the Com­mu­nity Hall, Church Lane, New­cas­tle Em­lyn and usu­ally fin­ish about 12.15pm.

The U3A is for re­tired and semi-re­tired peo­ple who want to live, laugh and learn to­gether.

Var­i­ous groups meet dur­ing the month in­clud­ing astron­omy, strolling, craft, French, games, wine ap­pre­ci­a­tion and lun­cheon club.
