Group Feature: Art Practical

Art Practical - collageJust before we all needed to stay at home, the Hungerford U3A Art Practical Group took on a self-imposed challenge which they called "The Collage Project".

Firstly a photograph of a local scene was cut into 25 small, match-box size, pieces. Then members took one of these pieces and had to recreate the image thereon as an A4 size water colour painting. They were not shown the whole picture, only seeing the small piece they had taken and did not see progress of "The Collage Project", only the result when all 25 sections had been completed. Most members painted more than one piece.

The resulting Collage , which is a picture of "St. Lawrence Church from the Swing Bridge" is now on public display at The Hub ( Hungerford Library ).

Groups

Table tennis groupOver 20 groups are now up and running. Please visit the Groups page to see the latest information. However, in these difficult times not many are able to meet - other than by video link. If you haven't discovered Zoom we suggest you investigate, even if it's only for communicating with friends and family. For a FREE video conferencing App that is easy to use (and safe now that they have fixed some security issues) it is remakable.

Meanwhile - this may look like a social distancing exercise but, regretably, the table-tennis balls keep bridging the gap.


Organised walks are cancelled for the time being.

Barn Dances

We regret to inform you that BARN DANCES are now cancelled until further notice owing to the coronavirus health concerns.


Group Feature: Motoring Matters

Motoring Matters The group endeavours to cover all aspects of motoring, classic and modern, with an emphasis on 'during-the-day-during-the-week' activities and outings. We’ve had several excellent visits in recent months, to a French-Italian event at the Prescott Hill Climb and most recently to the Oxford Bus and Morris Motors Museums.

Lunchtime 'Motoring Matters Natters' are themed around current motoring topics allowing members to have their say and ask questions of the group. Members are encouraged to share their motoring experiences and expertise, special guest speakers will be invited to present to the group on topical subjects.

Please contact the Convener John Turton for further details.


More Information

There will be meetings of the whole U3A from time to time to listen to specific speakers and discuss progress. If you would like to provide any feedback - or offer to help - please use the contact form, we'd love to hear from you.
