Mr Chips Rides Again John Bartholomew
tells tales from school
John Bartholomew, former Chair of the Heritage Coast U3A,
Organiser-in-Chief of U3A theatre and opera visits, and
Quizmaster-Extraordinaire, takes a whimsical look at forty years
in the education business.
John spent thirty five years
full-time in secondary education, one third as head of a large
comprehensive school and a further seven years, part-time, working
as adviser, consultant and reluctant inspector. His talk will mix
anecdote with observation in the hope of offering something that
will stimulate lots of thought and some merriment.
There will be a short (5 min) talk about “Plastic
Free Lyme” starting at 10.54am. We will hear how Turn Lyme
Green and Lyme Council are working together to make the town

The Hedgehog Predicament,
with Colin Varndell
Most U3A members will be
familiar with Colin's spectacular and intimate wildlife
photography, and his rare ability to convey fascinating
information about his subject in an entertaining and engaging
way. On 11th July he turns his lens, and his passion for
wildlife, on the fate of the hedgehog. Prepare for a full house!
'The Hedgehog Predicament' is
the result of two years of research and photography. It covers
the natural history of hedgehogs, the catastrophic decline of
the species and reasons for it, and what we can do as
individuals to help hedgehogs. The presentation is illustrated
with photographs of hedgehogs and other specifically-related

John Betjeman: Poems, Places
and People - an illustrated talk by Don Archer
Probably the best-loved poet of
the twentieth century, John Betjeman was much more than a poet: He
was a man of many interests, enthusiasms and abilities: writer,
critic, lover of Victorian architecture and country railways,
conservationist, radio and television personality.
His topographical writings and
guidebooks, particularly those about churches, towns and villages,
give us not just information but a sense and spirit of place. An
eccentric and lover of eccentricity, he has much to teach us about
how to look at places and how to look after them.
By profession a physical
chemist, Manchester-born Don Archer has lived and worked in Devon
for over 50 years. His varied teaching career (at secondary
schools, technical college and university) culminated with heading
the science side of the School of Education at Exeter University.
His interest in industrial
history and archaeology, particularly of Victorian times, brought
him to John Betjeman. In his talk, Don touches on a few poems,
rather more places, and scores of people associated with Betjeman.
Coffee is served from 10.00 to
10.45 followed by talk at 11.00 until noon.

The Musical Heritage of
Thomas Hardy – a presentation by Bonny Sartin
Thomas Hardy's skill as a
fiddle-player is perhaps less well-known than his talents as
novelist, poet and playwright, famed around the world. And Bonny
Sartin is equally familiar to thousands worldwide as frontman
for folk group the Yetties for the best part of fifty years.
Bring these two together and
what do we have? The story of Hardy's music, his instruments and
the characters he created, many involved in traditional song,
music or dance, told with songs, poetry, music and readings.
(And plenty of fun and laughter.)
arrived in Dorset 350 years ago, Huguenots fleeing persecution and
settling in Corscombe to work the land. Today the family is Dorset
through-and-through, with the Yetties ("just four lads from the
village") taking their name from Yetminster. Dorset was the anchor
for a group that travelled the world, sharing folk music wherever
they went. For the last seven years Bonny has undertaken many
speaking engagements in the county "as a way of staying in touch".
Don't miss this one.
Coffee is served from 10.00 to
10.45 followed by talk at 11.00 until noon.
Woodmead Halls, Lyme Regis
Friday 12th October:
The Heritage Coast branch of
the U3A is holding a coffee morning for existing and potential
new members on Friday 12th October at 10.00am at the Woodmead
Halls in Lyme Regis.
A happy social occasion,
this offers members and not-yet-members the chance to learn
more of the leisure and educational opportunities that are
available with membership of your local U3A. You can come to
chat, and talk to representatives of the many activity groups.
You can join new groups or even consider starting your own.
The committee members and plenty of group leaders will be
there. At 10.00 there's a special welcome
for new(ish) members – those who have joined in the last 12 to
18 months – with cake not available to other members ...
U3A coffee mornings are

Talk and AGM:
The Red Arrows – an
illustrated talk by Phil Holt
The Red Arrows aerobatic team has won the hearts of a nation
and is renowned throughout the world, acting as ambassadors
for Great Britain and supporting UK industry by demonstrating
the capabilities of British equipment and expertise. Since
their creation in 1965, the Red Arrows have flown over 4,000
displays in 52 countries.
Phil's illustrated presentation takes us through the events
that led to the creation of this exceptional team of pilots.
He then introduces the men and women in the famous red suits,
who make precision their profession, teamwork their science
and aerobatics their art form. He will bring some official Red
Arrows Merchandise for sale.
An Air Traffic Controller for almost 40 years, Phil served at
seven locations including Heathrow. He was a reservist in the
R.A.F., a flying instructor and involved in Maritime Air
Region operations; he can count among his flying achievements
parachute dropping and flying for the St John’s Ambulance air
wing. He continues as an active pilot and is a Flying Display
Director, involved with the show circuit for over 30 years.
Phil's talk will begin at 11.00am. Beforehand, at 10.00am, the
AGM will be held: hear a summary of the year's activities
across the many groups, monthly talks, trips and visits; learn
of the (good) state of the U3A's finances; ask questions, make
suggestions, and elect (or change) the committee. Coffee will
be available at about 10.30am.

The Heritage Coast Lyme Regis U3A currently has approximately 45 active groups covering a wide variety of subjects. There are a number of study groups including Geology, Current Affairs, Opera Appreciation. Whilst others help maintain and improve fitness, such as Tennis, the Walking Groups and more. Other groups offer an opportunity to have a go

Groups need not be large

Studies are all undertaken at the group’s own agreed speed and there are no exams to take. Members are encouraged to see the value and take pleasure in learning for its own sake.
How to Join a group or become a Group Leader

Two long standing Group Leaders are now
standing down. The Committee wish to thank John Wood who led
the Jazz Group and Pam Moseley, the Relaxation Group until the
summer, for over 10 years each. They have both earned a well
deserved retirement and we do hope we see them at events in
Pam has sent the following which should
give us all food for thought:
However busy we are we should find space to have time to
ourselves. If we feel weary or stressed we should try and sit
quietly, slow down our breathing and just let our minds go
blank. If the weather is good find a corner of the garden and
just sit and watch the birds or flowers opening in the warm
sunlight. We are so lucky to live by the sea and one of the
best ways to relax and wind down is to go down to the sea
shore and watch the waves washing up and down the beach. Try
it sometime I am sure you will enjoy and benefit from
it. Pam Moseley

the basis on which these trips are organised:
We are aiming to manage all communication through email. We will seek to book for shows which are suggested to us by members and/or which we think would attract enough to fill a coach. We will always secure tickets, on a sale or return basis, in advance of payment to the theatre, to allow members time to firstly, express an
interest and then commit to the event. We will then only pay for tickets which have, effectively, been ordered. At this point the cost of the trip, ticket and travel, becomes the responsibility of the individual member. We can try to `sell-on` tickets but we cannot guarantee this. JB

Liz Jones Memorial Walks
Liz Jones loved
walking and sourced over seventy circular walks in the area. For several years she and her husband David led the U3A Walking Group and after she died in April 2013 members of this group decided
to make some of her walks available to a wider audience as a tribute.
The Group would like to thank David Jones for his leadership and all his support for this project - rewalking each route
and checking our efforts. Our thanks also go to Susie Gamble for creating the model for the walk maps, Sue Wilson for her layouts and technical expertise and Maurice Liddiard for coordinating the project.
