 Meetings of the TT Group are held on the 4th Thursday of each month (except August and December).  Talks start at 10.30am but come any time after the doors open at 10am.  Unfortunately due to Covid there will not be any refreshments available until further notice.

Many thanks to Garth & Penny Letori for their super talk and photos about Poland in October 2021. Their arms have been twisted to talk to us again in 2022.

We are open to all Carrick U3A members. If you’ve not been before please do give us a try.  There’s no need to contact the Group Leader before attending. There’s no commitment to attend regularly. Notice of the date of our meetings, the name of the speaker and the subject matter of the talk are given every month in the Newsletter. 
We are very fortunate to have excellent speakers (usually from among our U3A members) and their topics are wide ranging.  Some speakers have lived and worked in the places they talk about and others are given by travellers. Talks may be of experiences in remote places whilst others are about more frequented places and give ideas for holiday destinations. We also like to include talks about places in this country too.

The Group is very popular but can only continue as long as I can find new speakers and that’s increasingly difficult. So anyone in our U3A (whether or not you’ve ever been to a Travellers’ Tales talk) please contact me if you’ve been somewhere interesting and may be willing to give a talk.
We meet at the Kea Community Centre, Playing Place. There’s plenty of car parking space and the Centre is convenient for the bus stop at the Shell garage Playing Place.
Please wear a face mask before and after the talk but you may remove the mask whilst seated during the talk if you wish.  Please do not attend a TT meeting if you or anyone in your household have any symptoms of COVID-19.

My thanks as always to all of you that help with the Group in so many ways including setting out and stacking chairs and greeting at the door.
