In March 2018, a meeting was held in the village to gauge possible interest in forming a local u3a. As a result of the interest expressed at that meeting, the inaugural meeting of the Ruddington & District u3a was held in May 2018.
The groups’ aim is: “To enable members to enrich their lives with new skills and experiences. pursue their interests, form new friendships and enjoy a sense of belonging to a vibrant community.”
The group has grown steadily. Unfortunately, the pandemic meant that no face to face meetings could take place for a considerable time, but at last normal service was resumed last month.
On 21st February, we held a well-attended General Meeting where members heard an amusing talk about life on an urban farm years ago. Then members were able to get updates about the Interest groups and have a cuppa and a chat. They also were able to obtain free security items, courtesy of the Rushcliffe Borough Council Community Safety Team.
The u3a meets on the third Monday of each month at 2pm at the Methodist Church.
If you’re retired, semi-retired or not in full time employment, you’re welcome to attend a monthly meeting with no obligation to become a member.
