Badminton

Carol Townend reports: The Monday evening badminton group after a strenuous but enjoyable evening. Unfortunately we can’t play again until September as the Academy says it hasn’t the staff to cover the summer holidays.

AND A SPLENDID TIME......

Members of the Walking Tennis Group enjoy the annual Pimm's and Strawberries.

Many thanks to Celia and Monica for organising the treat.

STEPHEN POYZER REPORTS:

Below are a couple of photographs from the last Safari Supper event - u3a members enjoying a delicious meal at Boboli's on a fine summer evening.


We shared some really fantastic starters to try: smoked salmon with caviar, bresaola with a goat's cheese pâté, fresh fried whitebait and lemony mayonnaise and Mediterranean vegetable croquettes with Romesco sauce...All for a knock down price.  Are you licking your lips? 


If members wish to join in one evening please let me know by email stephenpoyzer@gmail.com

THE LATEST FROM VANESSA TAILBYBATES

After completing the MH Carnival 10km, Vanessa received a number of additional donations and reached a grand total of £800 for Guide Dogs, amazing.


 Again a big thank you to the u3a for their support.

FROM PAT JENKINS:

The book group decided not to meet in July and August as so many of us are away or involved  with grandchildren. We meet again on the 2nd Wednesday in September.

We are enjoying our discussions, in spite of one book which we all loathed.( I won't tell you what it was.) Mostly our choices have been enjoyed and we find plenty to talk about.

ANOTHER MESSAGE FROM STEPHEN

The Landscape and Architecture group has finally had its initial meeting and are to embark on its first trip out to that well known place nearby, Market Harborough.
