PROGRAMME FOR SPRING SESSION 2019

The name may have changed but the format remains the same. We are an enthusiastic, lively  group of mainly retirees, but anyone of any age is welcome to come along.

We will continue to meet on Wednesday mornings from the end of September until early December and continue from late January until the middle of March. We run a series of talks by specialist speakers on a wide variety of subjects (History, Travel, Music, Art, Literature, Politics and Current Affairs, to name but a few) many of which are illustrated. We aim  to keep our grey cells exercised as well as provide a welcoming, friendly forum for meeting like-minded people with an interest in just about anything.

We meet in the Reading Room above the Library in Skelmorlie Community Centre, which is easily accessible by bus (the stop is at the front door) and there is a large car park close by.

Tea, coffee and biscuits are freely available from 9.30am with talks starting at 10.00am until 11.00am to 11.30am at the latest, so there is plenty of time to fit in other activities during the rest of the day. We also arrange two outings each year to places of interests or events in central Scotland.

Anyone is welcome to come along to whatever talks appeal to you and there is a nominal charge per talk to cover our costs.

For further information please contact Jenny McGee on 01475 521090.
