With a host of students signing up in a few short weeks, U3A Beachmere started it’s inaugural Term with an amazingly diverse range of classes and workshops, from computer and smart phone to meditation and yoga, lots of languages, crafts, skills, sports and the ever popular ukulele.
Some other statistics that support this truly wonderful community endeavour: over 200 members enjoying 25 classes taught by 15 tutors and supported by over 40 volunteers.
U3A Beachmere has started with a groundswell that has locals talking in the street, at the shops and over coffee. The premise is to promote healthy ageing by sharing educational, creative and leisure activities provided by its own members. It fosters a friendly, stress free environment to learn and socialise.
