To belong to the Great Glen U3A Gardening Group, you do not need to be an active gardener, (though some of us are) or need to know anything about gardening. All that is required is an appreciation of gardens and plants.
From March onwards we shall meet in the Village Hall car park to share lifts to various local gardens so if you haven’t a car we can find you a lift. Refreshments are usually included on our outings out.
During the winter months when there are no local gardens to visit, we have speakers or show DVDs in the warmth of the Methodist Hall.
We have formed a small committee and have now planned the year ahead so if you come to one of our meeting we have it all printed out on a card for you to keep.
We meet in the afternoon on the 3rd Friday in the month. Everyone is welcome to join us. For more information please contact: -

This is a small group of members who travel out to a Leicestershire village each month to walk round and learn more of the history of the houses, churches and other buildings in a relaxed and unhurried stroll, and often ending with a lunch at the local pub.
Great Glen U3A are indebted to the Lottery Fund for awarding funding to enable the purchase of 6 lap-tops. Dates for the next computing group will be issued shortly.
There is a waiting list, but we will get around to all the members eventually. The first course is aiming to teach the basics of getting on-line and able to use web browsing and emailing. Anyone with NO computer skills at all will benefit from the course, as they will borrow the computers to take home and practice the weekly lessons. We aim to help those to help themselves! More advanced course will follow.
