Whilst our U3A provides many opportunities for learning, we also have a vibrant social dimension to our activities. These bring together people from across a wide range of special interests, in a convivial atmosphere, simply to enjoy themselves. Many of these excellent events are organised by the Social Subcommittee.

Events so far in 2019
Friday 28 June: Our ‘Antiques Road Show’ was a great success!
It was a full house at Aughton VH in late June for our ‘Antiques Road Show’ style social evening. After a delicious hot buffet supper, local auctioneer/valuer, Mike Litherland, then went through the antiques & curios that members had kindly offered to bring along for display & valuation. It was a most entertaining & interesting evening.
Mike rounded matters off by presenting some of his own items, including a pair of samurai horse spurs and that Victorian kitchen essential – a ‘serving spoon warmer’!

Friday 16 Aug: Our ‘Song & Dance Social’ – a great evening!
Following a splendid hotpot supper, we had a great evening’s entertainment provided by local excellent guitarist/singer KEN WATERS. He played lots of our favourite songs, to both listen to & join in singing with, plus plenty of dancing too. A particular thank you to Diane & Jim Higgins for their marvellous CHA-CHA-CHA to ‘Under the Boardwalk’ – very much enjoyed by the audience!
