Meetings are held on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 10am, by arrangement. in member’s houses. We feel more intimate surroundings are more conducive to free discussion.

Currently, each member chooses a book which we all read and meet to discuss it, led by the group member who has chosen the book.
We do not read works by the same author more than once but opt for novels new to all of us.

The group is full at the present time with 10 members. This means every member has a chance to choose one novel for each meeting throughout the year.
I am sure there is sufficient interest within Hessle U3A to start another group if needed, but a small number in a more intimate venue is recommended to enable each person to make a contribution.
Classical Music Appreciation
Leader, Paul
Phone, 01482

The group meets once a month to listen to a carefully selected programme of music in recorded performances. Introductory remarks by the group leader place the music in its context and suggest points of interest to listen for. These introductory commentaries may include illustrations on the piano or on CD. Sometimes a ‘map’ of a work is provided, to guide the ear as we listen.

Meetings take place at the Church Hall, Our Lady of Lourdes, Swanland Road, Hessle, on the first Monday of the month from 2.00 – 4.00pm.
Leader, Eric
Phone, 01482 641048

The group welcomes you whether you have just acquired your first computer or are a highly trained IT specialist.  We meet at All Saints Church Hall, The Square, Hessle, on the third Friday of each month (except August and December) at 10am.

We use the computer for fun things as well as for making light work of communication and budgeting.
Allotment Group
Phone, 01482 644005

This group is a collection of independent gardeners with a shared interest in growing plants for gastronomic and visual pleasure.  The only requirement is for members to keep their plot and surrounding areas clean and weed free.

Holding meetings on site is all but impossible because of members’ different commitments and uncertain weather conditions.  A request by the group for a meeting can be arranged at my home.  We did have a visit to an Elloughton garden opened in aid of the Mires Beck Charity, followed by a pub lunch.

I am available by phone for anyone requiring advice.  Members are encouraged to share spare seeds and seedlings and so help to cut costs.

There are several active cyclists in Hessle U3A.  At times, we have ridden in a group but other commitments make this impossible on a regular basis.  Nonetheless, I am willing to organise rides for you, of a distance acceptable to you.

Cycling along the quiet lanes of East Yorkshire and North and Northeast Lincolnshire is one of life’s great pleasures.
