Shipston on Stour Area U3A

The Open Day Fair held in October was universally voted a success.  Entrance was free, not only to members but also to the public, including tea, coffee, cookies, and even, if you visited the Wine Appreciation table, tasters of wine from both the Old and New World.

The whole of the Townsend Hall was buzzing, not only in the Main Hall but the Holden Room, Kitchen and Servery as well.  As visitors arrived everything got under way.  Marion, our Town Crier, gave us the benefit of her voice at the opening, then the Recorder group struck up and later the Fosse Way Orchestra would be rehearsing and playing.  Table tennis was being played in the Servery, games of Chess, Bridge and Scrabble were going on, Family History was being researched on the computer, while the Crafts group made Christmas gifts and decorations.  All groups were displaying their aims and interests, showing what they could do, and what they had done during the year, including destinations and outings.

Eleven new members signed up on the spot and many more took away forms to complete.  Members circulated the hall and many signed up for extra groups, so the result was a renewal of enthusiasm with a getting-together of members in a party atmosphere.
