Change of Venue for the iPad Group

We will be meeting in the ROOBARB AND CUSTARD cafe on Tuesday 3rd September at 1.30 pm. 

Future meetings will continue to be on the first Tuesday of the month in the cafe. 
New members will be most welcome from absolute beginners to the more experienced. If you don’t have an iPad but are interested please come along and have a ‘go’ on one of ours. Meetings are quite relaxed and we talk and laugh a lot! If you only need support to develop one particular skill please come and we will help where we can. 

Hope to see you there

Visit to Tyneside Cinema

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.

Litter Pick

Jan Leach, 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 11.30am.  

I think 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.
