New Groups

Would you like to be a Group Leader and set up a New Group for a pastime, interest or hobby that you have? MKU3A welcomes new groups and new ideas. Please contact the Groups Coordinator, Shirley Dewar at groups@mku3a.org or telephone 07879 007513

Sew-Happy Crew

Would you be interested in joining a new, weekly sewing group in Bletchley to bring together sewing and stitching enthusiasts?.

It is planned to meet on Thursdays from 10.30 to 12.30 and hopefully the Group will start very soon.  The sessions will be informal and open to all regardless of skill level. There will be no teacher as this will be an extremely informal group -  the idea is that members learn from each other.  However if a member has something with which they require help there may be someone within the group who can help. 

It is hoped that those with special expertise will be happy to lead workshops sometimes and the Group Leaders hope to bring in the occasional specialist who can guide the Group in their special craft.

If you are interested, please contact Shirley Dewar, Groups Co-ordinator on 07879007513 or groups@mku3a.org

Possible New motoring group

Are you interested in cars? Are you a keen driver? Would you be interested in joining a new motoring group? The group would aim to cover a broad spectrum of topics from classic and super cars to electric and autonomous vehicles and everything in between. Car design and why certain cars succeeded and others failed and more.  

Driving including safety, the Highway Code, driving licences and categories, advanced driving, mature drivers will be covered.

Motorsports and famous people inc racing drivers, designers and others. Insurance. Breakdown services. Road trip accounts. Driving abroad after Brexit. 

Advice and tips (and no doubt group  members experiences!) on buying, selling and looking after your vehicle. 

There is also the possibility of group outings to places of interest such as motor museums and race days.  

This is only a small sample of the topics that motoring can cover and I’m sure group members would come up with many more. Topics would be covered by way of talks, discussions, demonstrations and videos. 

The group would initially meet monthly on the first Thursday of the month in the morning but if it proves successful this could increase to twice monthly.

Introduction to Art Appreciation

Would you be interested in forming a new Group offering an Introduction to Art Appreciation?

It is hoped that the new Group will start in September.  The session will be informal and open to all.  There will be no “teacher” – the idea is that members learn from each other.  It may be possible for members from the other Art Appreciation Groups to offer assistance.

An initial meeting has been arranged for Thursday 14 May at 2pm to discuss the Group. If you are interested, please contact Shirley Dewar, Groups Co-ordinator on 07879007513 or groups@mku3a.org.
