Possible Zoom Talks

Would you be interested in attending talks broadcast over Zoom?

Because it is still unclear when we shall be able to hold monthly Speaker Meetings in New Mills Town Hall for a large group of people, your committee is investigating booking speakers to give talks over Zoom.

These talks would be on the usual day of the third Tuesday morning of the month.

If you would be interested in attending these talks, please register your interest by emailimg: zoomtalks@newmillsu3a.org.uk

Singing for Fun is now happening on Zoom

We meet at our usual time 1.15pm on the first Monday of the month.

It's not the same as singing together at Providence Church but so far those from the group who have joined in seem to be enjoying it. Our tutor leads us for 75 minutes and still makes it fun!
