An exciting celebration for Cirencester
Thirty years ago, 22 residents in Cirencester formed the local u3a. Today we have 670 members. Without Pam McGarth (who was 100 last October) and Jane Brewin, we would not be here today to celebrate our 30th Anniversary.
The u3a is for everyone who wants to remain involved and active after retiring or seeing their children leave home. It’s an opportunity to meet other like-minded people, to make new friends, try something different, share experience, learn something new and have fun. There is so much to choose from. These include outdoor activities, arts and crafts, languages, music, literature, cultural interests, science, technology, environment and much more. Our motto is learn, laugh, live.
Recently we launched a High Street Project, collecting data about the impact Covid has had on our High Street businesses. We also started China Chat – a non-political group, where members share their personal experiences of China, its culture and history. Aa well as these, we organised Bowls and a Solo group. Whatever people’s interests may be, members’ groups can be started.
To mark our 30th Anniversary, we are celebrating during 2022 with a picnic in the park; an afternoon of entertainment with tea and cakes; a tree planting project and a commemorative publication, plus individual group activities.
Information leaflets can be found at the Museum, Bingham House, The Sports Centre and the Library.
