Current Affairs Forum
( Beyond the Headlines)
There is currently a vacancy in the forum.
We meet third Wednesdays, for a couple of hours in the morning, and discuss one major “hot” topic each month.
Members jointly decide on our next topic by consensus. It’s then open to individual members to offer to research and present a forthcoming topic but there’s no compulsion.
A variety of topical issues have absorbed forum meetings recently: including, for example, School expulsions and the rise in youth crime. Is regulation needed to prevent scamming? Does the civil service need reform?
Usually, about eight or so members attend and our convivial meetings are held in members’ homes, by invitation when and if convenient.
If you’d like to join us please contact the leader or the Groups Co-ordinator.
The Recorder Ensemble has entered for the Chichester Festival of Music, Dance and Speech. The main entrants are youngsters, but there is the possibility for oldsters to enter as well. The music section has a class for recorders and, within that, a category for adults – any size of group, any combination of recorders, own choice of programme but must be under 10 minutes. We have decided to have a go and are preparing four short pieces to perform at 1.50 pm on Saturday, February 29th in the Central CE Academy in Orchard Street.
Support from U3A members would be welcome, although it will cost a visitor £3* to watch our session (about 30p a minute!). Wish us luck!
* “Please note there is an admission fee for non-competitors of 3.00 per adult per session or 5.00 for more than one session/all day. A season ticket (which covers all events except the concert) is 20.00. There is no fee for children of 16 and under.”
Cryptic Crossword Groups
Both groups currently have a vacancy and we would be delighted to welcome more cruciverbalists!
Group 1 (for those with crosswording experience) meets on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday mornings each month.
Group 2 (for near beginners or less confident cryptic solvers) meets on the 1st and 3rd Thursday mornings each month.
We work together to solve crosswords and we practise our solving techniques. We’re a friendly bunch and enjoy our sessions together. Both venues are in Chichester, on bus routes and near carparks.
