2 ancient ways of keeping the brain cool?

 (from the History Group Pages)

A self evident fact about the U3A?

"Women should not be allowed to go to University, because their brains will overheat"

See the Philosophy section of the current Magazine!

The main U3A monthly meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month at the Pemberton Community Centre, H.E. Bates Way, Rushden, Northants, NN10 9YP  to which we invite guest speakers who cover a wide range of topics; the current programme can be viewed by choosing "Monthly Meetings" on the Menu Bar. The atmosphere is always welcoming and friendly and refreshments are available. 

There are lots of links which may prove to be of interest on our Useful Links page including details of our local MPs.  Also keep an eye on the News page for (hopefully) up-to-date items.

A Message from the Chairman

ChairHello everyone,

I have some good news, thanks to Pauline Harris and her existing team of volunteers and thanks also to our 17 new volunteers who all seem to be working well together, we will be able to have hot drinks from today onwards.  I know a lot of you have missed this (I missed my cup of coffee too) but we couldnít risk dealing with hot drinks until we got our teams in place.

I think we would all agree that we have had a wonderful summer this year.  Normally, I donít think much of autumn as my favourite seasons, like most people, are Spring and Summer.  However, this autumn I have taken up flower arranging and last week we were asked to look around the countryside and try to construct an arrangement from natural branches & leaves.  It was quite interesting what I could find and I made what I thought was quite a good arrangement helped by some beautiful rose hips from a hedgerow and it didnít cost a penny!  So perhaps that is a lesson for me and others who have felt the same about autumn that we should think again
