What’s happening at Westerham U3A?

By Wynne Gifford

2023 marks our 10th birthday and on 10 August many members enjoyed a special afternoon tea provided by the Courtyard Café, and an anniversary cake specially made by one of our very first committee members.

Entertainment was provided by Colin Hill, Hilary Moore, and Eileen Perryer, with humorous sketches. Chairman Tony Pearson congratulated all members on their support, as it is only because people get involved and help out that the organisation flourishes.

On Thursday 14 September our meeting will take the form of a quiz, featuring teams of six. This proved a successful event last year.

In October, our speaker will be Tony Harris and his subject will be Henry VIII. Tony lived and worked at Hampton Court for two years and played Henry VIII every other day, for the benefit of more than half a million tourists.
