Spring has arrived, the weather is improving and the Kilmore and district U3A exercise group are     looking to boost their numbers. We meet every Wednesday at 10am in the Kilmore memorial hall supper room. We offer a 15 minute tube and tone session with resistance bands followed by either a gentle, chair or cardio session that lasts around 40 minutes. New members are most welcome. Some equipment is available for you to use. Please call Cheryl on 0408 171 033 for more information.

The luncheon club outing to Nagambie was very well attended last month, it was a lovely venue and a very pretty drive followed by an excellent lunch, all in all a pleasant day’s outing. The next venue will be The Royal Hotel in Seymour. The fortnightly lunch excursions are very popular being great value for money and an opportunity to socialise.

The ukulele group played their second gig at the Caledenia nursing home on Wednesday 30th August. They were very well received and will be playing there for the residents on the last Wednesday of each month, in place of the usual session at the U3A centre in Sydney St. Ukulele is a fun little instrument to play and it is easy to pick up the basics. Being smaller than guitar and having only four strings it is less complicated and less of a stretch for the fingers, reducing the wrist tension associated with guitar. If you want to have a go, call Amanda on 0429 317 553.

The recorder group also got to play out at the Old Courthouse in Kilmore on Saturday August 26th.         A small group of enthusiasts are breathing life back into the annual Celtic festival, which had suffered badly during covid. The line-up this year featured local artists and the recorder ensemble was invited to participate. They played a selection of Irish airs and reels and some Scottish and Welsh folk songs in three and four part harmony. There was a lot of interest from the audience in the wooden bass, tenor, alto and soprano recorders being played by the group. The recorder group meets at 1.00pm on Fridays at the U3A centre, Sydney St, Kilmore. Why not dust off your old school recorder and come and join us?

U3A is open to anyone over 50 who is no longer working full time. Visit the website at Email us on or write to PO Box 550, Kilmore, 3764.  New members are always welcome.
