South Solihull u3a Members' News
This page is for items of ssu3a news that members may be interested in, but that are not connected to a specific Interest Group. Members may submit articles to email@example.com. There is a set format of a title, some text and a picture if you wish. Please specify an expiry date on which the article will be archived. This is a moderated service so nothing too racy will be published.
Our condolences go to the family and friends of Jean Pryke, who died last week. Jean was an active member who was often to be seen at Core Meetings. Her funeral will be at Robin Hood Cemetery on 20th December at 11:30 a.m.
u3a and Core Theatre Launch Classic Film Club
Andy Cooper, a member and former chair of Cheswick Green u3a, has arranged with the Core theatre in Solihull to launch a classic film club. Each film will be introduced from the stage by Andy.
This is really exciting as these classic films look great on a full-sized screen. The first film will be Casablanca on 8th Feb., followed on 8th March by Now Voyager.
Andy has negotiated a discounted price of £5.00 for u3a members. Bookings can be made now via their website. To obtain the discount you need to book by 'Section' (not 'Seat Map') on their booking page.
