WINSFORD U3A

First published in Clubs and Societies

Over the last few weeks Winsford U3A has been fully engaged in the First World War commemorations which have recently been prevalent in the town.

Members of the local history, military history, and singing groups launched an exhibition in Winsford library on Saturday, August 2, with songs and readings from the period.

Members Judy Wright and Ralph Ellis, who were inspired to write poems when visiting war graves abroad, read their compositions, Remembrance, and A Great War Journey.

Half a minute’s silence was observed at the end, after which members expressed their appreciation of a very moving occasion.

Winsford U3A has been asked by the town council to display their local history research at the Winsford Salt Fair, September 17- 20.

They will also be manning a stall at the Salt Regatta at the Marina and Flashes on Sunday, September 21.

There is a showcase of U3A activities in Winsford library this month, leading into an open day on Friday, August 29, 10am-3pm. People who are no longer in full-time work are invited to come along and find out what’s on offer.

A welcome meeting for members and visitors will take place on Friday, September 26, in the Hazelmere restaurant from 10.30am.

One member has said: “My life has changed completely since I joined the U3A, there are so many groups to choose from and you can do as much or as little as you like.”
