The First East Midlands U3As Summer School
Over 60 have registered interest in the proposed Summer School.  Some courses (Below Stairs in Country Houses, Churches, Digital Scrapbooking, Lawrence and  Walking and Wildlife) have attracted a great deal of interest whilst other courses (Gardening, Participative Learning and Environmental Studies) have attracted less interest. We do have enough expressions of interest to make the Summer School viable but we would like to offer at least 6 courses to make the experience enjoyable and worthwhile for everyone.
