News from Stowmarket U3A

In this new year, new decade, are you desiring to meet new people or learn something new? If you are retired, or semi-retired, then maybe Stowmarket U3A is what you are looking for. The U3A, for those of you who are unfamiliar, is an organisation that aims to bring together retired people to socialize, educate and participate in creative activities in a friendly and informal environment.
Recently, we came together to hear a very interesting talk by a member of the Colchester Zoo team about the history and in particularly about the work the zoo does to conserve and breed animals at risk. The work they do is very varied, often involving several, steps over many years and extremely successful. Last month, we learnt about Hearing Dogs for the Deaf. We have a talk every month and the topics are very varied. We also hold social events and trips out. For Christmas, nearly 100 of us gathered to share a very tasty Christmas lunch and laughter. In the future, we have outings planned to the theatre and places of interest. There are many groups that our members also run on a whole range of interests every month eg Canasta, table tennis, singing .
