Volunteering — It All
Depends On Us
Book Group 7: NEW We are hoping that a new general book group will be starting in February. It will take place once a month on a Thursday morning at the coordinator's house in Finsbury Park, which is about a seven minute walk from Finsbury Park Station and very close to a 91 bus stop. Some of the places have been offered to members on a waiting list for a book group but there are still a few places available. If you are interested and would like more information please contact Sue Welsford here.
French Intermediate Conversation Group: NEW We have now been able to set up a second French Intermediate Conversation group, which will be run by a native French speaker who has also taught French for some time. It will take place on the second and fourth Fridays of the month from 10.30am. The coordinator lives in Petherton Road — about five minutes from Canonbury Overground and a couple of minutes from a 341 bus stop. Most of the places have already been offered to members on the waiting list but there are still a couple of spaces available. If you would like more information please contact Sue Welsford here.
Bird Watching Outing: This group is going to Brighton on 10 February to watch the starling murmurations over the pier at dusk. It's open to non-group members. If you are interested in going along full details are on the web page here.
Articles for the Next Newsletter
We are short of input to our winter newsletter. If you have anything about your experiences with iU3A — you may be the co-ordinator of a Group and can write about the Group's activities, but anyone is welcome to contribute something — then please email your report to Anna McKane here.
