BIRDS AND BOTANY

Next Meeting
Monday 8 October 2018
RSPB Old Moor

Meet New Mills Co-op
car park 10 am to car share

jw

RSPB Old Moor in the Dearne Valley is one of our favourite visits. A former coal-mining site landscaped to provide a variety of habitats including large areas of wetlands, Old Moor still holds the record for the number of bird species seen on a single visit. It also has an abundance of wildflowers attracting butterflies and other insects. An October trip should allow us to see passage migrants and winter visitors to the reserve as well as the resident bird species.
l Luncheon Club 2 has spaces for new members.  If you would like to join us to enjoy a lunch in good company, we meet on the first Wednesday of the month at 12.30pm.  We visit pubs and restaurants around the area.  l

Our programme for the rest of the year is:

October – The Beehive, Combs
November – The Shady Oak, Fernilee
December – The Three Bears, Poynton (at our December lunch we will discuss the 2019 programme)

SINGING FOR FUN

eg

Have you ever listened to groups or choirs singing in harmony, and wished that you could do that?

Well, the good news is that you can!  Even if you don't think you can, YOU CAN!! Once a month the  U3A 'Singing for Fun' group meets for a two hour session for 'acapella' singing. That involves unaccompanied singing in three or occasionally four part harmony.

You don't have to be able to read music, because there is none to read! You just have to listen to our inspirational leader, Rose Hodgson, and to the other members of your section, then it's amazing how you can pick up your part.

We usually learn at least one new song each session, as well as revisiting  previous ones. The songs are from a wide range of styles, with ethnic and folk music, and popular music ranging from the Everly  Brothers to Cole Porter!

You can listen to a recording of us at the Groups Display morning on September 18th.
