U3A Open Day

Held in the Millennium Hall on the 9th March, from 2-4 pm, the place was buzzing from the moment the doors opened. The main hall was crammed with tables where most of the activity and study groups were represented, which allowed people to stop and chat and learn what makes Liphook U3A tick. These Open Days allow retired people in the area to come in and learn about the various ways that they can learn about subjects, such as languages, archaeology, science and technology, history and photography, in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. There are also many other activities, walking, strolling, tennis, table tennis, croquet and boules, for example, if keeping active is what you prefer to do. Many existing members also use this as an opportunity to learn about more groups so that they may broaden their activities within the organisation.

Queues started to form at quite a few of these tables, with people keen to learn more, whilst out in the foyer, the membership secretary was busy with people wishing to join for the first time and many existing members wishing to renew their membership for the new 2015-16 year.

In the nearby Canada Room, John Horner and his team of helpers were kept really busy serving up tea, coffee and homemade cakes to the visitors. Many also used this as a good opportunity to chat with members and learn more about this successful branch of U3A.

At the end of the afternoon, it was announced that seventeen new members had joined and many of the groups reported good numbers expressing interest in taking part in the variety of study groups and activities.
