Having enjoyed the talk given by Margaret Dodds, a volunteer guide for the Tyneside Cinema, 20 members followed up by visiting the Cinema on 26th July. The morning was fascinating, with Margaret proving to be a fountain of knowledge on all aspects of this fascinating local icon, her love of the place obvious to all. As we toured the building, on one of the hottest days of the year, we took huge pleasure in sinking into the wonderfully comfortable seats of the various studios, cocooned in the welcome blast of very effective air conditioning! The trip concluded with a delightful lunch in the Art Deco Coffee Rooms.
Chairperson for Seaham & District U3A asked me to contact you with regards
to our Litter Picking Group. I understand from Sarah Gurney that some of
your members might like to join in with us when we go out litter picking around
Seaham. Sarah joined us on our litter pick last month and she mentioned
that other people might be interested in joining us. We usually go out on
the Last Monday of the month, we meet at 9.15am, we litter pick until
this will be an ideal opportunity to network with our neighbourly U3A
group. Our next litter pick will be Monday 29th July, we will be
meeting at the Dene House Road entrance to Rock House Dene.
If you could let me know if any of your members are interested in joining us that would be great as I have to let Seaham Council know how many numbers, we are expecting so they can supply us with plenty of equipment.
What a wonderful exhibition of group, and individual works delighted our members yesterday at our summer gathering. The creativity of the exhibitors was stunning, their hard work and effort was much appreciated by all. Well done.
