Lunch at Duke’s Wine Bar
For our February Meeting a group of twenty five members met at Duke’s Wine Bar where we enjoyed a social lunch together.
The Wine Bar has an extensive menu ranging from Bar Snacks and Lighter Bites to Jacket Potatoes, Sharing Boards and Hot Dishes. They also have a selection of Desserts.
This is the second time we have visited the Wine Bar and feel sure it will not be the last.
At the March meeting we will be discussing EGGS. Not just for breakfast. Maybe a few tasters will be available.
Despite the cold weather we had a good turnout for our first meeting of 2018 and were pleased to welcome a couple of new members to our group.

Christmas celebrations Greek style
For the last few years the Food & Wine group have been celebrating Christmas “in house” rather than visiting a busy local restaurant in the run up to the big day. Instead of the usual British fare we prefer to explore and base our dishes on recipes from another country.
Continue reading Food & Wine – December 2017
Our Christmas celebrations had been planned for Tuesday 12 December. Unfortunately severe winter weather intervened and the committee were left with no option but to cancel at short notice and arrange refunds for all members who had bought tickets. These will be available at the January meeting.
New German Group holds first meeting
Our U3A now has another language on offer – in addition to French, Spanish and Italian, German is now an option at intermediate level.
