Earth Matters Group

 

 

 

A number of U3A members from both Haddenham and Greater Thame expressed an interest in setting up a group which we have named ‘Earth Matters’ as in ‘matters’ relating to the earth but also recognising the ecological aspects in that the earth does ‘matter’. So this is a joint group between the two U3As

Are you interested in studying your local environment? Would you like to know more about Botany, Geology, Archaeology, Palaeontology and Ecology. The emphasis will be on learning more about our local area. We arrange field trips with expert guides at two-monthly intervals between March and November and have an indoor meeting in the winter. The usual day is the second Wednesday of the month.

If you are interested in joining the group please contact Sue Oswell 01844 290568 sue.oswell@btopenworld.com. We would also be delighted to hear from you if you have an interest or area of expertise which could contribute to the group’s learning, or if you have any further ideas for possible trips.

We do hope you can join us.

Wednesday 9 May 2018 - Visit to Wallingford Museum

I have arranged to visit Wallingford Museum for a pre-Conquest museum visit and short walk on THE MORNING of Wednesday May 9th. For £10 you will get entry to the museum until November, coffee, a presentation and a short walk around the Anglo-Saxon ramparts. Wallingford Museum was much praised when it opened a few years ago. We ill share cars for the journey. I need a minimum number of 10 and a maximum of 20 for this to happen so I would be grateful if you could let me know if you are interested and I will make a first come first served list. It would alos be helpful to know if you are prepared to drive or need a lift
Enjoy the spring flowers as they appear

Many thanks to all those group members who help to organise our venues, speakers and refreshments. Please keep your eyes open for events run by organisations such as BBOWT and see if you can find out details so that we have a programme for 2018! I keep a list of possible ideas so please send them to me and we will see how they fit together to cover our varied interests
