U3A Carrick Group covers a wide-ranging area, so therefore general meetings are held in four locations.


January February

Athenaeum Club
Kimberley Place,


At our meeting on the Thursday 20th February,Rachel Reid from Cornwall Council will be talking rubbish...or to put it more accurately she will be telling us about Waste Management. As councils and the government start to take pollution and climate change more seriously it should be interesting to hear where all the stuff we recycle or throw away goes and what plans there are for the future.

TRURO:Central Bar, St Mary's Street 2pm

 A visit to Shelterbox at 2.00pm
Tuesday 28th January Please meet in the reception area a few minutes before 2.00pm.

Tuesday 25th February –

YOU, ME, and the SEA.
                                                          Confessions of a Thalassophile .
                                                     ( And why you’re probably one too )

Neil Hawkesford

Neil spent his early years in the Navy and apparently the lure of the sea has never left him. After the Navy he has led a fairly unconventional life style revolving around the sea and boats. He has involved himself delivering yachts and also attempting a lone sea voyage. Over a period of time Neil planned and built his own catamaran which he sailed to Spain and lived there until quite recently.
