  • Advanced DrivingMore

    Location: 

    Harmans Cross Village Hall

    Date/Time: 

    Second Friday of each month - 2pm - 4pm

    Details: 

    The U3A Advanced Driving Group meets once a month for classroom-based presentations on a systematic and safe method for driving. The presentations are based on the book “Roadcraft – The Police Driver’s Handbook”. 

    The aim of the Advanced Driving Group is to enable older drivers to carry on driving safely into later life so that they can maintain their independence. The focus of the Group is on observation skills and awareness of the everyday hazards encountered on modern roads. This greater awareness will enable you to anticipate hazards earlier and, thereby, give you more time to take appropriate actions. The skills you acquire will also promote smoother driving, which in turn offers improved fuel economy and fewer trips to the garage.  

    Many of the previous participants have said that the presented material has improved their enjoyment of driving.  

    We welcome and encourage Group discussions around the presentations, which can enhance and be advantageous to the learning process.

    A programme of 26 meetings / lectures / demonstrations on Astronomy spread over 3 academic terms by Graeme Nash.

    Topics covered are far ranging and structured covering for example the history of astronomy from the dawn of civilization to the present. He covers the origins, formation and structure of our own planet and the solar system. This leads on to a series of talks on Cosmology describing the structure, development and origins of our universe and finally speculative theories of the end scenario.

    Meetings are much more than a formal lecture format. Graeme welcomes and encourages audience interaction and always entertains us with his wit, erudition and above all his abundant infectious enthusiasm.

  • Cycling E BikeMore

    Location: 

    Purbeck - Various start points in and around the area

    Date/Time: 

    Weekly Thursday 10.00 start

    Details: 

    Rides will start at 10.00am and will last up to 3 hours.  The approximate distance travelled will be 20 - 30 miles, depending on the surface, terrain, gradient & general difficulty. Rides may be on road, off road, or a mixture of the two.  The rides will be circular, starting from a car park.  This will generally be a different location each week, to ensure a good variety of rides. The start (& end) point is likely to be a cafe or pub, so that lunch can be planned & available at the end of the ride.  Participants will therefore need to be able to transport their bike(s) by car, unless the chosen location is near enough to cycle from home.  

    After a short introductory period, participants will be expected to take turns, (via a rota) to devise, plan & lead rides.  The emphasis will be on E for enjoyment, so that where necessary, riders can use different levels of motor assistance to even out differences in strength & endurance levels. Nevertheless a moderate degree of fitness will be required to complete the rides.

  • Cycling for Fitness and FunMore

    Location: 

    Purbeck - Various start points in and around the area

    Date/Time: 

    Weekly Tuesday 10.00 start

    Details: 

    This cycling group has been in existence since about 2005 and has grown into a popular and friendly group with members of mixed abilities. We depart at 1000 hrs every Tuesday, weather permitting, from various points around the area [rule of thumb - Owermoigne in the west, Milborne St Andrew in the north and Pamphill in the east]. Members need to have a suitable and well maintained bike and should be capable of basic mechanical repairs. Most rides are a mixture of both on and off road, roughly 20-25 miles, on road rides may creep into the low 30's, and the totally off road rides are normally shorter but more technical, all lasting a maximum of 3 – 31/2 hours – depending on mechanicals!
    Each ride is organized by a pair of members on a rota basis, the tasks being shared equally by all the group. A 'banana break' is taken mid-way through rides and an optional refreshment stop is normally planned for at, or near, the end of the ride.
    All group notifications are via email.

    We are a mixed ability group that meet every Monday mornings except Public Holidays and those in the month of August. The first 45 minutes of the session is used to set-up the tables and generally warm-up, develop skills and practise in a relaxed atmosphere. After that we play games, mostly in doubles but sometimes singles as needed. We are generally able to play games with different people and abilities making a good mix through the session.

     PLEASE NOTE: (November 2019) group currently over-subscribed. Please contact group leader before attending for the first time, as there is a waiting list.

    Purbeck U3A Walking Group meets monthly throughout the year for circular walks  starting from various locations in the Purbecks and lasting about two hours. The start points always have parking available and are never more than a short drive from one of the main towns. We encourage car sharing.

    In some cases the start and finish point will be where those so minded can stop to socialise over refreshments or lunch.

    Suitable footwear is essential, and waterproof clothing and walking poles or sticks are recommended. There may be stiles to negotiate. Please bring a drink.

    Non-members are welcome for an initial walk but you must take out membership of Purbeck U3A prior to any further walk in order that the necessary insurance cover is in place.

    Our programme of walks is to be found here.
