Group News

Adventure Group- SCRUFF (senior citizens up for fun)
Our latest adventure was 'Go Ape' with 6 intrepid adventurers going for it! Three of us managed to complete the course whilst the other three got 2/3 of the way round before calling it a day. We were scrambling up rope ladders, crossing from tree to tree by various 'bridges' including swinging logs, zig zag slats of wood and zip wires. We all attained our 'Amazingness Certificates'. We sometimes landed off the zip wires on our rear ends as the picture shows. However, we gave some youngsters (20 something) who went before us a run for their money!

Adios y gracias!
Sadly, the ‘Self-help Spanish’ group is disbanding this summer. For the last two years, eight keen amateur Spanish speakers have met once a month to converse with each other and to share experiences. All of us had connections with Spain and, as a result, disappeared every so often to practise what we had learned with real Spaniards! Although the meetings were very enjoyable and we all grew in confidence, we had come to a point where we needed a Spanish specialist to help us with grammar and pronunciation. So regrettably, the group has folded. We are still hoping for a U3A member who is willing to lead a beginners’ group. Thank you to all the regular and very sociable attenders. I know I have met some really good friends in the process! Pat George
