Archaeology Group

U3A Archaeology Group.

Joy is retiring as leader of the Archaeology group at the end of this year and so far no-one has come forward to take over from her. The members do not want the group to disband and a meeting is being held on Wednesday August 14 at 2-30pm to which anyone who is interested in keeping the group going is invited. We hope there is someone among our 700 members willing to lead this group aided by a small band of folk who want to see the group continue but do not have Joy’s knowledge or experience.

Anyone interested in coming please contact Groups Co-ordinator.
