Tarporley and District U3A

The monthly meeting previously scheduled for 23rd June has changed due to national EU referendum and will now be on Thursday 30th June. Meeting at Tarporley Community Centre. Doors open at 10am. Speaker starts at 10:30am and it usually ends by 12noon. Speaker: Clare Pye on “The Civil War in Cheshire”


Peckforton and Beeston WI

The speaker for our May meeting was Ruth Court who spoke eloquently of her time in Iraq from 1976 to 1979 and showed us some of the photographs that she had taken. Her experiences were both interesting and occasionally humorous. The country was extremely hot and dusty with no proper air conditioning and obviously western women were seldom seen there at that time.

We are looking forward to our ‘Musical Afternooon’ in the Pavilion on 10th June in aid of Tarporley Hospital and our Garden Party, also in June.  Our next hall meeting will be on 3rd August when we will learn the secrets of handwriting, do come and join us.  Margaret Ellis 01829261898

Tarporley WI
Please join us on Wednesday 1st June, when Rob Selby of First Responders will teach us some ‘Crucial First Aid’. Have you ever considered how to act if somebody chokes?  How do we treat somebody who has fallen or been scalded before emergency services can take over?  Many of us look after children or grandchildren, and quick actions can save a life! What should you do if somebody collapses?  How would we recognise and respond effectively to the symptoms of a heart attack or stroke?  This talk could be life changing! We meet in the Done Room behind St. Helen’s Parish Church.  Doors open at 7:30, followed by regular business with our president Abbie, and we will welcome Rob from 8pm, so please come along if you can make it by 8pm! Bring a friend; your first meeting is free!  £5 for non-members.
