Tarporley and District U3A held the first monthly meeting of the year on Thursday 22nd January.

Mr Ken Clark gave a talk on "The Story of Astronomy and Backyard Astronomy". The talk was accompanied by a wonderful collection of photographs and a description of what we could see from our back gardens through binoculars. I am sure many members were inspired to be out on the first clear night and look at the skies from a new perspective.

Our next meetings are:-

26th February — Talk by Geoff Taylor on "Two Centuries of Boat Building"

26th March — Talk by David Hill on "The Crystal Palace and The Great Exhibition"

23rd April — Talk by Dr Christopher Cefai on "Supper Bugs and The Media"

We look forward to seeing members and prospective members on these dates at Tarporley Community Centre, the doors open at 10am.
