CASTLES AND TRAINS REPORT
Recently 10 ten members attended the home of Bruce Caslake to view his wonderful model castles and trains. Bruce has continued the display started by his late father-in-law (Dave Errey) many years ago. Bruce has been influenced by Dr Who, Thomas the Tank Engine and the Island of Shetland in Scotland. Bruce impressed all present with his display and enthusiastic commentary. It was obvious that his hobby enabled him to cope during the long lockdown.
Thank you Lynne for arranging another interesting activity.
Report on Speakers Corner
Last week 14 members of Portland U3a attended a talk by Sarah Sharp as a part of our Speakers Corner. Sarah is an active member of Friends of the Great South West Walk. Each year along with Gordon Page, she leads a group of visitors from many parts of Australia and the World along the complete journey of the GSWW trail. Sarah gave an enthusiastic outline of the development of the GSWW which included many visuals including a short but stunning promotional video. All present which included many of the U3A walking group thoroughly enjoyed the presentation.
Thank you Lynne for arranging the talk.
