Current Vacancies

Author, Linda Sharratt, Groups’ Secretary April 2020

I am pleased to give the following news for the month.  Group Leaders can contact me if they have vacancies and would like a mention here.  Contact: Linda Sharratt – email groups@formbyu3a.org.uk or 01704-878232.


Group activities are curtailed at present as a result of Covid-19 but we can still plan for the future


Bridge Co-ordinator:  Nikki Harrison is the Co-ordinator for the Bridge Groups.  She is the point of contact for members wishing to find out more about the different groups and which would be the most suitable group to join according to their experience.  Contact Nikki on 871308 or nikki@nikki101077.plus.com

Local History Co-ordinator:  Lis Harvey of LHG 15 has volunteered to be the Co-ordinator for the Local History Groups.  Contact details:  ipreh@tiscali.co.uk or 01704-621168.

Walking Co-ordinator:  Jeremy Swinson of Walking Group 3 has kindly volunteered to liaise with all the walking groups, including ambling and fell walking. Contact: swinsonjeremy@onetel.com or 871509


Jewellery:  This is another suggestion for a new group.  One of our members has donated some jewellery craft equipment and materials.  It is hoped that someone will volunteer to start a new Jewellery craft group with these items.  If you are interested please contact me: groups@formbyu3a.org.uk or call 878232.

Outings:  The committee is seeking volunteers to run an Outings group.  The aim is to provide regular outings by coach to places of interest, allowing people the opportunity to explore but also ensuring adequate access for those who wish to relax and socialise. The programme would include scenic drives with regular stops for comfort breaks.  If you would like to help please contact me: groups@formbyu3a.org.uk or call 878232 or any member of the committee.

Walking:  It has been suggested that another Walking group be formed as there have been a number of enquiries for walks of around 5-7 miles.  Please get in touch with me if you are interested in this idea.  If there is enough interest, I will set up an initial meeting to take it forward, although any such group would need a Group Leader.  Please contact me if you are interested:  groups@formbyu3a.org.uk or call 878232.
