Two groups both meet 3rd Thursday, 2pm - monthly
Garden Group 1
Garden group 1 members enjoy gardens. In the summer we make six monthly visits to gardens, one of which is a joint day trip with garden group 2. We find the owners of the gardens to be knowledgeable and welcoming and our visits usually end with light refreshments. Our meeting place is a shopping centre car park in the Loundsley Green area, where we arrange car sharing and share the route to our garden of the day.
For winter meetings we combine with garden group 2 (see below).
Garden Group 2
Garden Group 2 engages in similar activities to Garden Group 1 but
summer time trips leave from the bus turning circle at Sainsburys.
Summer visits are to local gardens of interest, often listed in the
'Yellow book'. We join with Group 1 for a summer visit to a garden or
gardens further away. Information about the visit appears in the
Chesterfield U3A Newsletter.
During the winter months there is a series of talks, discussions and exchange of views held in the Lecture Theatre of Chesterfield Library. All U3A members are welcome to these events.
