Travellers' Tales



We meet at the Kea Community Centre on the 4th Thursday in the month at 10am for a 10.30 start and talks are usually for an hour.  (We may in future have to adjust the start and finish time to fit with the bus schedules from both Truro and Falmouth.)  The group take a break from the monthly talks in August and Decembe.
The dates of talks this year are 22nd February, 26th April, 24th May, 28th June, 26th July, 27th September, 25th October and the 22nd November.

Unfortunately there was not a Travellers’ Tales talk in March as the Kea Community Centre was being used for another U3A function.
Pam Cox’s talk on the 26th April is entitled 'Spitsbergen - Realm of the Polar Bear'                In June 2017 Pam Cox took a 10 day wildlife voyage around the island of Spitsbergen in the high Arctic. She will show us some of the amazing birds and animals spotted on land and at sea in this hostile environment, along with the fantastic scenery including pack ice, glaciers and ice bergs.



Philip & Wendy Franklin will on the 24th May be giving Part 1 of a talk about the Eastern Atlantic Islands.  This talk includes Madiera, La Gomera and The Azores. 
A comparison will be made between the History, Culture and Terrain of the islands of the Eastern Atlantic.
The picture is of a traditional house at Santana on Madiera.



Please make a note of the date of both these talks in your diaries!
Just a reminder, we now meet at Kea Community Centre Playing Place on the 4th Thursday each month (excluding August and December) the Centre will be open from 9.30am and the talks commence at 10.30.  Come early and have a cup of tea or coffee and chat with members of the group. New members are always welcome.  I do hope all the new members who came to the February meeting will come again and there’s plenty of room for many more.  There is ample car parking at the rear of the Centre and the Playing Place bus stop is close by.

Please remember I’m always looking for speakers so if you have lived, worked or travelled to somewhere interesting (UK and Europe, not just exotic distant locations) and are willing to give a short talk please contact me.
