Would anyone be interested in making up a local walking group for about 2 hours in an afternoon, say once a fortnight?     We could take a drink and stop half way for a break and a chat.     I was thinking about country or coastal walks in and around Falmouth, Budock Water, Mylor Bridge, Mylor Harbour, Restronguet.      Dogs welcome perhaps!  
If you are interested please contact me at

THE NEXT WRITING COMPETITION is now to be known as the Barbara
Scammell and Tony Herring Memorial Competition.
The writing competition will be open to ALL members of Carrick U3A.
Subject matter can be about anything that inspires you. It can be something
purely fictitious or something based on a real-life experience.
We all have many stories within us and writing is very therapeutic. I urge you to
take part, whether or not you have participated in the past.
It is important that you read the rules carefully before starting to write.
1. There are three categories: Poetry, Fiction and Non-fiction, and each Member
of U3A Carrick can submit up to two Poetry and two Fiction/Non-fiction entries.
There is no entry charge.
2. Fiction and Non-fiction entries must be no more than 1000 words and Poetry
entries no more than 40 lines, excluding the title and word/line count. Entries
may be on any subject, must be the member's own work, and should not have
been previously published.
3. Send your entries to from 1st
September up to 30th. September. Entries can only be accepted by email. If you
don't have access to email, ask a fellow member, friend or family to help.
4. Images are not accepted.
5.Send details of your name, address, and telephone number, the title of each
entry submitted together with the category [fiction, non fiction or poetry] plus
word count of each and line count in the case of poetry.
6. Entries should be sent as attachments to your email using Microsoft Word,
Open Office or plain text formats. Your name should not appear in the
attachments since the judge must read anonymous entries.
7. You are advised to check your work very carefully before submission and
preferably to get someone else to read it through. No amendments are accepted
after submission unless the entry has been rejected, e.g. for being too long or
submitted too early.
8. All entries may be published by the organisers in connection with the
competition, e.g. read out or put on the website/newsletter. Authors retain
copyright apart from this.
9. The work will be judged by an independent judge whose decisions shall be
