U3A Monthly Radio Podcast – have a listen to February 2021

This is the fifth episode of our podcast, made by a team of u3a members with experience in radio. Each episode, which comes out on the 17th of each month, features interviews with u3a members and captures the amazing things happening across the u3a movement.

This month, we go wild swimming in Cornwall, take a trip to Japan and hear a song that could have been written with the pandemic in mind.

Listen to the episode now on our YouTube channel and listen to all previous episodes on our playlist. 

If you have a story to share, please get in touch with us.

March – Third Age Trust Online Talks

It’s a good idea to make a note of the national u3a Events page and check it regularly to make sure you are in time to book any talks you are interested in. By the time we publish our bulletins and newsletters, these events are often sold out.

Monthly Meetings – Success with Zoom

All the Kingston Monthly Meetings since August have been held on Zoom with members being emailed a link so they can join in.   This has met with great support  nearly reaching the 100 maximum on our Zoom licence in most months. We weren’t completely sure if a few extra might creep in should we hit the magic one hundred well in January we found out it was 100 and no more so several members couldn’t join us.  Consequently at the next Committee meeting after some research we have upped the licence to the next level and unless over 500 of you join us which of course would be magnificent we should be fine!  So see you on 1st Feb to hear Imogen Cunningham speak on the Bayeux Tapestry.

Drawing and Painting Group 2 : Various Media

Drawing and Painting Group 2 meet in the United Reform Church Kingston on a Tuesday afternoon.  We are a happy group of sixteen, mixed ability, mixed gender, but who all have a real love of putting, pen, pencil, brush,  or whatever to paper.  We are lucky enough to have an excellent tutor in Charles Penny, who since joining us some 18 months ago, has breathed new life into our perceptions and given us the enthusiasm to try new things.  We were lucky enough to be able to show our work recently at the CornerHOUSE Theatre in Tolworth and during the course of the exhibition a total of 12 paintings were sold, which was very gratifying.
