This group was formed in 2015. We hold monthly meetings in a room at a pub in Widcombe. All members contribute to the smooth running of the group and we rotate the choice of subject for discussion amongst the group each time we meet and that person chairs the meeting.
In October 2021 we started to meet face to face again.
We meet on the second Tuesday of the month, and aim to start at 10:15. We start with a short discussion for 20-30 mins of a surprise topic suggested by a member based on a rota. We then move on to our main topic of the month. This is circulated to the group a week or so beforehand to provide an opportunity for research and preparation.
During our discussions we promote our views and/or endorse, refute or question those of others. The chairperson summarises. We finish at noon.
We try to alternate our main topics between those with an international and political bias and those which are of social and ethical interest. Of course there is much overlap.
We meet monthly and each pay approximately £2.50 per session, which provides a hot drink.
Currently our meeting room is not wheelchair accessible.
We limit our membership to fifteen and are not actively seeking new members but, if you'd like to join us or would like more information, u3a members can contact us via the details in the members’ newsletter. Non‑members can email us at:
