Indoor Meetings Risk Checklist

          Outdoor Events Risk Checklist

Enrollment for 2021/22: With reluctance, the committee has decided it would be safer this year not to have our traditional u3a enrolment event with interest groups having stands in the Madeley Centre hall. Instead, there will be a single stand in the Madeley Centre, where you can enrol and collect a new booklet on Wednesday 1 September 10-1am and Thursday 9 September 10-1am and 3.30-4.30pm,  after the Monthly talk.

New group: Boules: Details to be confirmed.  Contact Kay Manning on manningsdandk@tiscali.co

New group for September: CREATIVE WRITING: From Inspiration to Publication.  This course is for anyone who writes, or would like to write, short stories, novels, memoirs, even plays. What it doesn’t cover is poetry.  It doesn’t matter whether you are an experienced writer or a complete beginner, we will start with what inspires you and in six monthly sessions work though topics such as planning, character building, plot, dialogue, how to build tension and how to get your work out there.  Even if you don’t plan to publish, or write purely for the joy of it there will still be plenty for you in the interactive workshops. Pen and paper, or laptop will be required and we will work towards giving each other constructive feedback on our work in progress.  Misha Herwin is a writer of books for adults and children. She has also written plays which have been performed both in schools, a Theatre in Education Company and by amateur groups. Her short stories have been published in a number of anthologies in the US and the UK.  She runs creative writing and drama workshops in schools, libraries, museums and most recently at the New Vic Theatre.  Her books can all be found on Amazon and other digital outlets.  This course will take place for 6 months, from 10am-12noon on the third Tuesday of each month, starting on September 21st.  Please contact Misha at mishaherwin1@gmail.com  if you are interested.

Walks:  These will be arranged on an ad hoc basis in August, hopefully at least one per week.  Offers to lead walks welcome.  Contact Steve Hurd on stevejhurd@gmail.com

Coffee mornings: These are held in The Madeley Centre every Monday morning (except Bank Holidays) at 10.30 a.m. as a regular event.  All members are welcome.  Covid restrictions must be observed.
