General Monthly Meetings

These take place on the second Tuesday of each month in Littleton Village Hall. Doors are open from 2:00 and talks which are free of charge begin at 2:30. Talks usually last about an hour and are followed by tea and biscuits. All U3A members are most welcome.

Contact the speakers organiser, Nick Vernon, contact details, for further details.

The speaker is asked to start at 2.30 pm, but we love to see you, the audience, when the doors open at 2.00 pm, so that you have time to chat with your friends, meet new members. The talk usually lasts for around one hour with questions, and we then enjoy a cup of tea and biscuit before leaving at around 4.00 pm.

Not all members have cars or are able to drive, and the bus service does not fit in with our timings. Please help fellow members with their journey to the meetings where you can.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR PREPARING AND SERVING TEAS


At least 3 people are needed. If you think that you will have difficulty serving teas on your date, please swap with another group and advise me. On the day, please arrive at Littleton Hall by 2pm to lay out cups and saucers etc. before the talk starts. The hot water heater doesn’t take long to heat up. Alongside are very clear instructions as to its use. The dishwasher, which completes a cycle in just a few minutes, should be switched on at least 20 minutes before needed.

During the talk, please sit at the rear of the hall close to the door so that you can make a quick exit as soon as the talk has finished.

Thank you all for your co-operation.

Rose & Steve Saunders
