Horizons Meetings

The detail on the rest of this page refers to the Pre-pandemic Horizons Meetings.  Please visit  New Horizons for the hoped-for restart of weekly Thursday Morning Meetings at Aughton Village Hall on 22 July.

Weekly Horizons Meetings are held on Thursday mornings,  9:30 – 11:30am, in the Scout & Guide HQ, Long Lane, Aughton just next to Christ Church.

Rotas at Horizons

Chairs and tables are set up before the start of Horizons thanks to the members of the Chair Rota. If you would like to volunteer for this Rota, please contact its Organiser, Sue Watkinson, who is very often present at Horizons.

Please remember to clear away your own chair and table at the end of Horizons if you possibly can.

There is a Welcome Desk Rota of helpful volunteers at Horizons waiting to answer your queries  – especially useful if you are a new or a potential member wanting to know more about the U3A.
