The U3A

The U3A is a marvellous organization for retired people. It offers a wide range of study groups so there is something for everyone.  It relies on  expertise from within, and there is plenty of that.

This morning I ran the  monthly session of my Social History Group.  This year we are looking at famous inventors.  People who are well known for their inventions but whose personal life is relatively unknown.  This term we are concentrating on communications and began with Gutenberg and Caxton, then we moved on to telecommunications with Alexander Graham Bell and Marconi.  All four men generated a lot of discussion.  The group particularly enjoy being able to contribute to the sessions.
