So, what is coming up for the end of this month? On Tuesday 25th our speaker will be Alan Haines talking on ‘The Baby Boomer Nostalgia Show’. This follows on nicely from our speaker in January who took us back to the glory days of television and reminded us of some of the many brilliant programmes that came out of the BBC in those early days. Continuing feelings of nostalgia Alan explores what shaped and inspired a whole generation and, in the words of Harold Macmillan, told us “ We had never had it so good “. His talk sounds like the perfect antidote to get out of this damp and drab February we are having. Start time as usual is 2pm in Crockham Hill Hall.
Can you help? A separate organisation has booked to use part of the upper car park at the hall for the week beginning the 24th. Car park space will therefore be restricted so if you can car share to get to this meeting it would be very helpful.
“15 – 2, 15 – 4, 15 -6, and a pairs 8 “ will be familiar calls to those of you who have or still do play crib. It’s a great card game and Christine Prickett is setting up a group of people who would like to play pairs crib. She has 5 on the list so far but would like a few more before getting the group under way. Interested? Then sign up on the list at the meeting at Crockham Hill.
Again, there is some interest from a few members to join up with the table tennis group that is currently running at Chiddingstone Causeway on Monday evenings. This group is open to U3A members but is not officially one of our groups. Players of all abilities are welcome. Again, sign up at the meeting.
Exercise and Wellbeing
Are you still trying to regain that sylph-like figure you had before Christmas? Perhaps the wellbeing and light exercise group being run at Edenbridge Leisure Centre might just be the answer you are looking for. See Christine Byrne or Sandra Gentry if you would like to join this group.
I will not be seeing you on the 25th but will be back in the saddle in March. Some sunshine and warmer weather beckons.
