Here is the recording of the announcements made at the March Meeting
The Military History Group will be visiting HMS Belfast which is moored in the Pool of London on Wednesday May 1st. The trip is open to other members and a coach has been booked. We are due at HMS Belfast at 11.30 am, the pick-up time will be confirmed nearer the date but leaving HMS Belfast at about 1600, the cost will be £32 a head including coach & entrance fee. There is still room for a few more so if interested please sign up and pay at the April meeting or contact me via email (Ken Satterthwaite) ASAP.
May I remind you that there is limited access for those who have mobility problems. Access on board and only two decks are mobility friendly.
Thames Valley Network have announced details of a second study day on “The Interactions of Medicine, Science and Art” which is being repeated by popular demand as the first had a long waiting list and was voted excellent by most of those attending.
The programme of the day can be found on the attached flyer. If you would like to book your place, please complete the attached application form and return it as instructed. As always details will also be on the Thames Valley Network U3A website u3atvnetwork.org.uk. along with the list of other planned study days.
This is a continuation of our enquiry into the political and climate change effects within the Arctic. This next study day will focus on sovereignty and how it affects all aspects of exploration. We are delighted to welcome back Dr Robert Headland and Lt. Commander John Ash, both from the Scott Polar Research Institute (SPRI), part of the University of Cambridge. They will continue their enlightening lectures and elaborate on trade via Northwest Passage plus inform us about the state of play over claims to territory and fossil fuels.
