Evelyn and I literally wore two hats to publicise our U3A’s Red Hatters group.

We were at Beamish Museum last Thursday for the German visitors trip to the museum.  The display was met with interest and we explained to the interested public what we were about. One lady from another U3A down the country took details to potentially start a Red Hat group at her meeting. Another gentleman took photos of the display board to show his neighbour who had a Red Hatters garden party each year. We had our photograph taken quite a few times during the day.

Some people knew about the Red Hat organisation not attached to U3A’s others just thought the idea of growing old having fun must be a good thing! We can’t argue with that so here’s to our next Red Hatter’s outing in September.
