January 2020


Angela Hindley has very kindly offered to lead a new HISTORY group, starting in the New Year. The group will meet on the last Wednesday morning of the month at The Lighthouse Community Church in Sheringham. The first study topic over the first six months will be The Tudors. There is space for a few more members.

Sutton Bridge U3A has started a new ARCHERY group, open to beginners as well as experienced archers. They meet on the first Wednesday and third Tuesday mornings of the month in Sutton Bridge.


As mentioned in the last newsletter, the Committee is keen to try ‘pop up groups’ lasting just a few sessions. We are delighted to be able to confirm the following:

Maxine Lewis is offering an introduction to ASTROLOGY - a journey of self-discovery round the zodiac through an analysis of your personal birth chart. The group will be meeting fortnightly on a Tuesday morning, beginning on Tuesday 14 January 2020 at Maxine’s home in Beeston Regis, probably running until Easter. There is space for a couple more members.

Meanwhile, Janette Dundridge is willing to lead a short course on KEEPING FIT INTO THE THIRD AGE where you can learn how to navigate through the various machines and free weights, learning the basics of how things work, figuring out where to start, and choosing exercises to suit your ability. The venue will be at the Health Hut at Holt Youth Project, most likely on a Monday late morning beginning in February.

We have also found a tutor willing to teach BEGINNERS BRIDGE. The venue will be High Kelling Village Hall, probably on a Monday morning starting in April.

We have been asked for short courses on CANASTA and CRYPTIC CROSSWORDS, but we need someone with the necessary enthusiasm and knowledge to lead them. If you are that person, please get in touch.

If you would be interested in learning or teaching any of the above groups, please let Susan Riddle know.

Details of all groups, including information on how to get in touch with the group contacts, can be found on the Groups pages of the members’ area of our website go to and remember to log in.
