creative writingWhether you have a secret ambition or you are experienced or even published, the Hungerford U3a Creative Writing group is a joyful and inspiring place to be.

We meet once a month, currently on Zoom, and swap our writing news, have a live writing exercise and a project is set for the coming month. This is a very relaxed group without pressure or criticism, only positive feedback and encouragement.

Why not start 2021 with a new interest and meet new friends?. You will be made very welcome. Please contact Iris Lloyd via our contact page by clicking here.

Chair Yoga - regular sessions each Tuesday

This is not a U3A funded event - but is open to anyone. A small donation if you are able. Go to the page for more info

Thanks to the NHS and all Key Workers
