Possible New Groups
Playing the Ukulele
The ukulele is the instrument which has the the fastest growing number of people taking it up in the UK. Its attraction is that it is easy to play. Ken Wakefield of the West Cheshire Rural u3a started a group in 2019 and it has proved to be very successful and enjoyable and is fulfilling the u3a motto of ‘Learn, laugh, live’.
When the Group started the members, including Ken, had no knowledge of the insturment and now, a couple of years later, they have 50 tunes in their repertoire. Ken has offered to share his experience of starting up a new ukulele group and to help others to start up in their own u3a.
Members interested in starting a Ukulele Group in the Knutsford u3a should contact Stuart Allan, Groups Supporter, for further details. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or tel 01565 632904.
Knutsford Tennis Club have joined the LTA initiative to allow the general public greater access to courts. To this end they have made 2 courts available on Sunday afternoons from 2pm – 5pm at a cost of £10 per court per hour. Under this arrangement courts can be booked up to 14 days in advance.
Before we can take this initiative forward we need to assess the level of interest amongst our members. Anybody interested should contact Margaret Ellis via email@example.com for more details.
Getting the most from your Digital Camera
Only two more Easy Lessons remain for the current group but, with enough interest, I would be happy to start a new group in 2022. To express interest, please contact David Woolf at firstname.lastname@example.org or 01925 755097.
A dip into Classical Greek
If “It’s all Greek to me” applies to you, then this is the Group to join. Classical Greek and Greece is deeply embedded in the way we in the Western World think, speak, do politics, do science, do health….
We’ll begin by looking at the language and reading (in English, you’ll be pleased to hear) a seminal work of literature, and thereby dip into so much more of what happened 2,500 years ago and how it is still relevant.
Because I am not a Classicist (but if there is one in the Knutsford U3A do please contact me) the group will not be over-academic in nature. I hope too, that members will bring their own relevant interests to it so that the group will become truly participative.
With sufficient support the group will begin in January. Please contact David Woolf at email@example.com or 01925 755097.
Arrangements are proceeding for this Group and we now have a member who has experience with instrumental and vocal groups and was involved with groups in the Knutsford area and can provide a keyboard, keyboard accompaniment and singing support.
If you are interested in joining this group contact Kath Scott at firstname.lastname@example.org
