Architecture Group 1 meets in the morning of the first Friday of each month at a venue in Penrith, for which members contribute to the cost of the room. In the best U3A tradition we are a shared learning group, and each member is expected to participate in the projects we undertake. We make visits to sites of interest and occasionally have a speaker, or sometimes a member of the group who has a particular interest to share. For details of our programme contact the co-ordinator Gillian Stoddart 01768 862501
This group usually meets on the third Monday afternoon of each month in members’ homes or nearby venues. The aim is to find out more about local, national and international architecture, including both earlier and contemporary styles. We encourage members to discover for themselves more about locations and individual buildings which interest them, to give talks to the group on their findings and generally to share enthusiasms and expertise. We tend to meet indoors when the weather is less good and to arrange visits for the warmer months when the weather may be more conducive to being outside. There may be scope for joint meetings with the other Architecture groups, particularly to share the cost of an outside speaker and to travel together to sites of particular interest. Currently this group is full and there is a waiting list for new members.
