Spotlight On Some Of Our Groups

Mike Billington - Folk Dancing

Folk Dance Group

The dances suit any age, gender and ability. Dressing up is not required.

There are no specific steps to learn. The dances can be skipped or walked, even if you think you have two left feet!

In the spirit of the u3a it is a shared learning experience, for the callers as well as the dancers!

The NEW Sugarcraft Group is now taking members. For more information click here to visit the Sugarcraft page.

Sugarcraft is the wonderful art of making lifelike flowers, models and cakes from sugar.

Fiona Web, a member of the British Sugarcraft Guild, passed her City and Guilds in 2008, since then she has taught adults and children in this very creative art-form.
