If you can spare some time one day between 7th and 11th September to help the Seafront Gardens Group with weeding and planting please contact Merry Bolton via email [through the Seaside Gardener's page on this website]. Merry will decide which day next week will be best depending upon the forecast. There are three beds which are the responsibility of the U3A and all are on the flat part of the garden. If you have any spare plants for which you want to find a good home ask Merry whether she can use them in the gardens.Re Garden Lovers I’ll be contacting you again re garden visits once it becomes possible to meet safely. The main obstacle at the moment is of course car-sharing.
BOOK GROUP 1
The Dorset Library Service for Reading Groups is hoping to reinstate its service in October. Group 1 Book Group wants to restart as soon as possible but unless anything changes about the number of people who may meet indoors who are not family, members will collect the first book from the Group Leader, Jocelyn Marsh , read it and email their review of it back to one of the group members who has kindly offered to collate them and send them round to the remainder of the Group. In this way, Jocelyn states,"we can begin to get back to enjoying our varied reading whilst observing social distancing. As soon as it is possible, we shall return to our usual practice of meeting in members homes."
The U3A Making Music group Group Leader, Rob Walker states: "We are still meeting fortnightly on Zoom and are starting to get the hang of it. We usually have 7 or 8 members participating and we follow a lead instrument either piano or piano accordion with verbal prompts from Liz, our conductor. The other instruments playing are all muted to avoid a general cacophony, It's good fun and of course we get to chat as well."
JAZZ APPRECIATION LIVE!
"Some of the JAL! group are venturing out to see Matt Carter and Leigh Coleman in an open air performance at the Marine Theatre on Friday 4th September. We hope for kind weather and hot jazz to keep us warm." Heather Britton - Group Leader
