Ilkley & District u3a will be showcasing its 100+ groups at event in Ilkley this weekend.
Time to spare after the world of work? Maybe the kids have left home but you are not ready yet to just drift along? This u3a showcase event on Saturday morning 1st July at the Clarke Foley Community Centre may be just what you’re looking for. This is an opportunity to open new horizons through meeting others with similar interests.
A spokesperson for the group said: "Ilkley & District u3a is part of a national movement that encourages anyone to share their passion and interest for any number of different topics. Currently nearly 2,000 local residents are members taking advantage of well over 100 different interest groups. Examples include Railways, Discussing the News, Disco Dancing, Walking Cricket, Visiting Historic Houses and Art Appreciation. There are also a number of walking groups catering for different levels of fitness.
"As a volunteer organisation, everyone contributes to the running of u3a. So the annual subscription is only £15. Some groups such as walking or those that meet in someone’s home have no additional cost. Others that hire meeting rooms share the cost amongst those attending.
"To find out more, join us at the Clarke Foley Community Centre on Cunliffe Road in Ilkley, near central car park, on Saturday from 10:30 am to 1 pm. Whilst there, pick up a copy of the latest u3a magazine and enter a prize draw to win afternoon tea for two at Bettys."
