What does the group do?

A relaxed group which paints in watercolour from pictures or still life, or maybe we will paint along together. In the summer we may have outings. It all depends on the interests of the group.

There is no equipment required – people do bring their knitting or sewing to our meetings if they wish.

What does the group do?

Making a cosy wrap for Premature babies is an easy way to use up odd wool you may have and helps to keep those stiffening fingers a wee bit supple. You do not have to be an ace knitter. It’s easy to knit or crochet 4 or 5 of these 3 inch squares while watching TV. It takes around 80 coloured squares sewn together to make a baby wrap and Stella is happy to sew the squares you so kindly produce.

Level of expertise

Any level

Equipment required

4mm needles and double knitting yarn.

Stella’s pattern: Cast/increase 1 at the start of every row to 20 stitches, then cast off 1 at the start of every row to the end.

Please say if you can improve on this pattern.

Meetings

This group does not hold meetings, but please bring your completed squares to the monthly Coffee Morning where Stella will collect them.

Cost

Please use up any spare wool and remains.

What does the group do?

We are a poetry appreciation group.

Meetings

We meet once a month on the third Tuesday at 2pm–4pm. Each month the group look at the life and times of a different poet to be chosen by a group member and to hear a selection of their poetry brought to the meeting by all the members. We stop for a cup of tea/coffee (50p) half way through.

What does the group do?

We are an oral Story Telling Group. Our stories can be tales we have written, real or fictitious, folk tales we have researched or myths and legends that have grasped our imagination. The emphasis is on oral presentation.

Once or twice a year we hold a public storytelling event and tells our stories to other U3A groups as requested. Not all the members perform at these events, just those who wish to.

Meetings

We no longer have regular meetings but meet to rehearse our tales and organise our events when required.
