u3a tree plant

Haddenham u3a has a double celebration this year.

The local organisation has its twentieth birthday and the group also wanted to commemorate the Queen's platinum jubilee year. Three specimen black poplar trees have been purchased and planted on Snakemoor. The new trees can be seen in areas close to the stream.

The committee, seen here, are always pleased to see new members (partly or fully retired) at the general meetings in the village hall on the second Tuesday of each month.

Meeting details appear in the Events calendar of this website.

For example, the u3a meeting on 10th May will feature 'A is for Arsenic' — by Dr Kathryn Harkup — an exploration of the poisons used by Agatha Christie, in her detective stories. Author and chemist Kathryn Harkup looks at how the writer used her extensive knowledge of drugs and medicines mixed with real life cases to create her brilliantly plotted crime novels. The meeting will preceded by a short AGM. 2.00pm for 2.15pm.

Tea and cakes provided.

Non-members who might be interesting in joining u3a are welcome to join us. Membership gives access to a range of over thirty interest groups.
