Melbourn & District University of the Third Age. We have had a great programme of speakers during the winter months at our monthly meetings at the Village College every third Wednesday in the month. There has been a wide variety of speakers and our audience total has held up very well despite some uncertain weather. The programme goes on now right through to November 2009 and we have even booked speakers as far ahead asJune 2010. The learning and active groups have also enjoyed their own programmes and we have now added Art & Drawing Classes, Local History, and Discussion to our lists. The Luncheon Club and the Garden Enthusiasts Groups are not now active but it is hoped they will start again in the near future. There are now some 420 members who have decided that they don’t want to watch daytime TV but would rather join a group and learn more about a particular subject. If you need to know more about us ring Arthur Alderton on 01763 260399. Colin Limming.
