“Thoroughly enriching — am so pleased to have joined”
Our activities range from drawing and wine appreciation to current affairs, languages, and lots more. Many of our interest groups remain active online using resources, such as Zoom, Skype, WhatsApp, and email or telephone. And we’re determined to resume our full range of activities as soon as it’s safe to do so.
Keep in touch with other members by joining the private HGS U3A Facebook Group.
