U3A moves home as membership grows

A POPULAR self-help group in North Somerset is moving to a new base to cope with its growing membership.

Woodspring U3A, which celebrates is 30th anniversary this year, enables older people no longer in full-time employment to share their knowledge, skills and interests through monthly meetings.

The group caters for people in Portishead, Clevedon, Nailsea and Yatton and has been meeting at Tickenham Village Hall since 1998.

Membership has steadily grown over the years to 350 people, with 54 special interest groups covering a range of topics including music, history, art, writing, Sunday lunches and walking.

In order to cope with the expanding membership, the group will now be holding its monthly meetings and coffee mornings at Nailsea Methodist Church, Silver Street.
