Sarratt And District U3a

2nd of April 2008

The Sarratt and District U3A has been going for a year now. We have over two hundred members and rising. We have 25 study groups, too numerous to mention all of them, but we cover a wide variety of activities such as Antiques, Art and Craft, Bird Watching, Computers, Engineering, Digital photography, Local and Family History, Languages, Painting, Rambling, Theatre, and Walking.
Last Autumn we held a Joint Study Group Fair with Rickmansworth U3A. On display in the Sarratt Village Hall were examples of the work that the groups had done, photographs of visits, collectibles etc. The fair was opened by the Chairman of Three Rivers District Council, Cllr Amrit Mediratta. The day was a great success and the hall was bursting at the seams all day and there was a buzz in the air.
In one year I think we have achieved a fantastic amount. When we started none of us knew how quickly it would take off and we have all been tremendously heartened by the willingness of members to make it such a success.
Each month we have a speaker in the village hall and these have covered a wide range of topics including Samuel Pepys, The Three Rivers Museum, Quaint and Quirky Hertfordshire, Japanese Lifestyle, Canal Art, The Land Army and many more. We look forward to a full programme in the coming year.
The U3A is only as good as its members and this group is pretty good.
If you wish to become a member, please telephone Trisha Robb-Collins on 01923 445070.
