March 2019




SHORT BEGINNERS GENEALOGY GROUP Margaret Hayday is offering a short course, aimed at beginners.  As well as researching your family history you could, for example, learn how to research soldiers’ WW1 records, or the history of your home. You would need access to a computer. Meetings would be held at Margaret’s home in Brisley


NORFOLK’S MILITARY HISTORY   Enough people have indicated an interest in this new group for David King to set up a preliminary meeting on Tuesday 19 March, 2pm at The Gallow Sports Centre in Fakenham.  The group will not necessarily be held on a Tuesday afternoon, so don’t be put off if you can’t make the meeting.




WIND PLAYERS MUSIC GROUP - Member Tim FitzJohn has asked us to ask for interest in the following possible new group: Tim is hoping to start a Group for a Wind Band or small ensemble based around Woodwind and Saxophones. Depending on interest it could be a Trio, Quartet or larger. The repertoire could come from many genres, again depending on the interests of the players. Players would need some proficiency with their instrument and sight reading but definitely no virtuosi!!  It is difficult to be more specific at this stage about how the Group would operate as it very much depends on players and instruments.  If you are interested, please call phone Tim on 01328 738393 or email him at


BEGINNERS CHESS GROUP - Edward Hackford has kindly offered to lead a Beginners Chess Group, perhaps meeting once a fortnight over a few months.


SCRABBLE Margaret Hayday is offering to start a Scrabble group – all levels and abilities welcome. Meetings would be held at Margaret’s home in Brisley


SPANISH CONVERSATION one of our new members wonders if there is interest in starting a Spanish conversation group.


FLAMENCO DANCING would you be interested in learning the basics? Let us know and hopefully re can get this new group going.


SCOTTISH DANCING Our colleagues in Kings Lynn U3A are offering places in their Scottish dancing group which meets in Kings Lynn or to run a short beginners group in Fakenham.


If you would be interested in being in at the beginning of any of these groups, please give us your name, email address and phone no and we’ll be in touch ASAP.


Don’t hesitate to get in touch if there is something you would like to see in our wide range of activity groups, but please bear in mind that we can only take things forward if you are prepared to become the Group Contact, in which case we shall be happy to help get an activity underway.
