Harrow U3A Luncheon Club
The Lunch Club has been running for nine years – we just celebrated our 100th lunch, at Dona Teresa of Hatch End.
Each month we go to a different restaurant in the area; members receive details of the venue well in advance, including the menu, and send their choice back to the group leader Aimé Levy together with their cheque (we keep the cost within £10 to £14). Numbers average 20-25, and sometimes only the first 20 can be included according to the size of the restaurant. There is no waiting list. The social side of the Lunch Club is great, but the food is important too, very varied – we are blessed with many kinds of restaurants in his area and have been to Italian, Chinese, Indian, Turkish, Thai – even Afghan restaurants. Sometimes it’s a high class pub or a fish and chips restaurant.
So if you are a sociable foodie, come and join us!
Leader: Aimé Levy
International Folk Dancing
This Group will introduce you to traditional dance and music from many countries of the world. Many dances do not require a partner and we are a very sociable group so you will not be left out if you come alone. It is a pleasant way to enjoy some company with the benefit of gentle exercise to lovely music.
Group Leader – Janet Woolbar.
The Memory Course is designed to inform members of how memory works at various levels, with ways to improve recall and the life style that affects it. After attending a seminar, when further details are given, members are asked to commit to the course which consists of twelve people for four 1.5 hour sessions on a weekly basis. It is an interactive, supportive and friendly group, led by Ann Harris who has a degree in psychology and Val Bard who is a retired GP. The date for the next seminar will appear in the Harrow U3A newsletter.

Group Leader, Brian Coe.
This group usually meets on the third Sunday of each month. There is a wide variety of outings – River trips, London walks and visiting places of interest, galleries, museums and homes. Freedom Passes, for those who have them, mean we can travel at no cost and most outings are free. We have four organisers, three of whom lead the group outings.

Tai Chi is not only for the body but also for the mind - a challenge, but well worth it for both reasons. Joyce Joly, the Group Leader, has taught Tai Chi for many years. She runs two classes on the same day, one for beginners and one for advanced students, each lasting an hour. Classes run throughout the year as Joyce believes that the body needs constant exercise.
This class, led by Farida, is held in the Greenhill Room at the Harrow Art Centre every Thursday from 10.00am. Everyone is welcome, especially beginners.
