Hastings and Rother U3A

A LIVELY talk was anticipated at the recent meeting of Hastings and Rother U3A and Ann Chance did not fail to deliver.

The title she had given gave nothing away, but Ann gave a humorous account of her life so far, from her early life at The Rosa Bassett School for young ladies to receiving an OBE from the Queen for raising funds for disabled people. The Queen was clearly amused to learn this include a parachute jump dressed as Wonder Woman.

She urged us all to ask ourselves why, how and where we were coming from and if we were enjoying our journey in life. If the answer to the last part was no, we needed to have a rethink!

The next talk will be on May 26 at the Azur, St Leonards – downstairs in the Round Room (lift available) when Hugh Davies will be talking about Enigma (Bletchley Park).

This will be followed on May 28 at St Peter’s Community Hall, Old Town Bexhill, when Steve Migden will be talking about the Anatomy of an Orchestra. Both meetings start at 10.15am and refreshments are served from 9.45am.
