U3A Meetings

TRURO: Conservative Club at 2.00 p.m.


Truro Meeting – 25th September

A well attended meeting to introduce the new steering committee and update on the search for a new venue. The search has been difficult to find a suitable hall at a price the organisation can afford and when asked the members present overwhelming voted to stay at the Conservative Club for the immediate future. Although the stairs are sometimes difficult it was thought the position in the centre of Truro and the welcome we have always been given  made up for this.
We then had a lively game of ‘Beetle’.

Perranwell meeting. 3rd October

Our thanks go to Terri Jones for putting together a really informative quiz we all learnt a lot about our County and people that have left their mark. The team that won were called the Saffron Buns and you cannot get more Cornish than that.
