A PICNIC in the park was hailed as a huge success.

About 80 members of Holmes Chapel and District u3a enjoyed an afternoon at the Victoria Club.

Local band 5 Bar Blues entertained the audience with two and a half hours of live music.

This community group now has over 65 different groups offering to share a wide range of hobbies and interests.

A showcase of the different activities offered is organized to encourage more people to join.

Peter Shields, Vice President of Holmes Chapel u3a, said: ‘The showcase is an opportunity to meet group leaders, members and committee members and discuss what we do and see some of our groups exhibit their wares.

“We have over 65 different groups across a wide range of interests, enjoyed by 780 members of Holmes Chapel and surrounding villages and towns.”

The u3a is a registered charity run by members for members.

Interest groups bring members together to share experiences, activities and learnings and have fun.

Tea, coffee and cookies will be offered free of charge to members and visitors to the event.

It is hoped that local residents will come and experience what the band has to offer.

Membership is £9 and there are no education or age restrictions.
