Calling all Members!

At our next AGM several of our committee members will have fulfilled their three-year term on the committee and will have to stand down. Obviously, we need to start to consider their replacements as Verulam U3A will not exist without these essential volunteers. If you think you might be interested in taking on one of these roles, we would like to invite you to attend a committee meeting for you to see what we get up to! Please use the Contacts page on this website to contact any of the current committee members regarding attending a meeting or to find out more about their role. Alternatively, speak to any committee member at the monthly meeting.

Natural History Group: This group currently has no co-coordinator and will unfortunately have to disband if no-one is prepared to take on this role. Please contact Tricia Milne if you think you could help out. August 2019


Art Group: We have been using water colours, acrylics and pastels; working on landscapes, portraits and animals. We like to encourage and help each other to improve our varying level of skills. Come and see an exhibition of our work at the October meting at Dagnall Street Baptist Church. Gillian - August 2019

Walking Football: Although no longer a U3A Group due to lack of numbers, please contact David Willacy if you would like to join Harvesters Walking Football. This group meets on Thursday mornings at 10:30. David - August 2019


Wings and Wheels: The eastern end of the Central line was at Ongar until 1994, but it’s now at Epping. The Epping Ongar Railway heritage railway now runs on the last 6 miles of the track. The Wings and Wheels Group had a great day out to the Epping Ongar Heritage Railway, travelling by steam and diesel trains on this stretch of line, starting from North Weald station, the base of operations. Terry - August 2019


Mae'r Grwp Cymraeg Canolradd wedi bod yn gwrando ar y gân werin ‘Lleucu Llwyd’ gan y band Tebot Piws. Hefyd dyn ni wed bod yn siarad am y Barcudiaid Cochion yn Gigrin Farm a gerflun Tommy Cooper yng Nghaerffili.

Welsh Intermediate Group: we have been listening to the folk song Lleucu Llwyd (Lucy Lloyd) by the band Tebot Piws (Purple Teapot). Also we've been talking about the Red Kite Feeding Centre at Gigrin Farm and the statue of Tommy Cooper in Caerffili. Miranda - August 2019

Apple Computer Group: If you have an iPad, iPhone or Mac important software updates are coming this autumn. These are particularly relevant to the iPad, which just might make you think of using it as your main computer, if you are not already doing so. We talked about these changes at our last meeting. Rod - August 2019

The Museum and Galleries Group: our July trip was to The Design Museum in Kensington to see the much acclaimed Stanley Kubrick exhibition, which clearly deserved the praise it has received. There were frequent references to his many years living in Hertfordshire and indeed many items on display were on loan from Childwickbury. Malcolm - August 2019.
