If you are retired/semi retired and want more fulfilment and challenge, the opportunity to meet new people and have some fun then check out the Kibworth and District U3A.

We run a wide range of self-learning groups; from folk music to table tennis; from bridge to crafts and from line dancing to film appreciation. Once a month we get together at Kibworth Grammar School hall for a stimulating talk and a cuppa.

u3aIn January, the scheduled presentation, entitled Royal Mistresses, by Roger Powell was cancelled at the last minute. However, after frantic phone calls, Chris Spinks came up trumps and we were entertained by the superb Caroline Roberts, seen pictured here alongside our treasurer, Cliff Hollingsworth.

A blue badge guide and the Lord Mayor of Leicester’s guide at the town hall, Caroline, armed with just a few pictures that she’d managed to quickly pull together, held us spellbound with her unscripted tales about Leicester(shire) and its connections to the royal family.
On 19 February Ian Silver of Leicestershire Search and Rescue will give members a fascinating insight into how they, at the request of police or other emergency organisations, help search for vulnerable and missing people. They are skilled at crime scene protection, casualty evacuation, search and recovery of significant objects and support at major incidents. We are told that a search dog will accompany Ian and when you leave after the event, you can inspect a search 4x4 in the car park.

On 19 March Danny Wells will tell of incredible achievements of Thomas Cook and his temperance reforming father in his talk ‘Cook’s Tours’.

Events are at Kibworth Grammar School Hall on Tuesdays, starting 13.45.
