"Interactive U3A". There were two speakers (one morning, one afternoon). There were discussion groups in the morning, when there was a chance for you to ask questions and air your views. FlyerApplication Form

The Project began with a suggestion from the Berkshire Record Office that we combine our interest in local history with our enjoyment of walking by using archive material to research the history of footpaths and then share the results with walkers from other U3As.
