Open Meetings, the AGM and other FU3A events will now take place in Connah’s Quay Civic Hall. The facilities mean that we have to serve your beverages in paper cups. If you wish to bring your own reusable cup/mug from home please do so. This will help to reduce the impact on the environment.

Deeside Social Event, Friday 21st September
We are planning a day of activities between Flint and Talacre on Deeside on Friday 21st September. This will include walks, but also sketching, photography, flora and fauna, and bird watching tasters. There will be music and song and poetry reading along the way and we are hoping to have tours of places like Flint Castle, Bagillt Community Garden and the Greenfield Valley.
You are invited to join us for as much of the day as you want and a full programme should be available by early August. We hope that new members will find something of interest and we are happy for people to invite others along who may be interested in joining the U3A. We would also appreciate help from people who may be able to help on the day in any way.
The next planning meeting for the Deeside Social is on Thursday 12th July 2018 at Buckley Cross Community Centre, CH7 2JL (3-7 Padeswood Street North, opposite Methodist Church), between 10:00 to 12:00. We would be delighted to see anyone interested in taking part in the planning of this event.
