FERNDOWN FETE

FERNDOWN FETE

FERNDOWN FETE JUNE 2021,  saw Ferndown U3A members enthusiastically  engaging with the public to share what we are about. We all enjoyed chatting with potential new members as well as catching up with those we have not seen for a while

Mike Andrews our Town Crier  shared his  latest verse

I look at you, you’re looking down,

You are suffering from lockdown.

Listen and Hear what I say,

What you need is your U3A.

You’ll meet people, Just like you,

Looking round for things to do.

For friendship, chat we’ve lots to give,

Go join us and Learn, Laugh and Live.

 

CRAFTING TOGETHER  27th May 2021

CRAFTING TOGETHER 27th May 2021

After a year of crafting by zoom, we finally met each other,  many of us meeting in person for the first time.   The sun shone, conversation flowed and plans were made for the upcoming year.

The main comment we how wonderful to do something “nearly normal!”

 

 

OPEN DAY MAY 2021

OPEN DAY MAY 2021

OPEN DAY 2021 was, like most of the year, not as planned due to COVID 19 restrictions. Instead of meeting inside, with a range of stalls and presentations from group leaders, we met outside distributing flyers and brochures.

It was a really successful morning as we were able to engage with lots of possible new members as well as  meet people we haven’t seen for ages.

Mike Andrews our Town Crier  added to the occasion with his verse 

             Oyez Oyez Oyez

             We’re launching the brochure of your U3A.

             for Education, Exercise and Fun,

             There’s something here for Everyone

             So take a leaflet now, please do,

             And find a group, just made for you.

             God save the Queen

Well done everyone,

 

PUN TIME

PUN TIME

When fish are in schools, they sometimes take debate.

A thief who stole a calendar got twelve months.

When the smog lifts in Los Angeles U.C.L.A.

The batteries were given out free of charge.

A dentist and a manicurist married.  They fought tooth and nail.

A will is a dead giveaway.

With her marriage, she got a new name and a dress.

A boiled egg is hard to beat.

When you’ve seen one shopping centre you’ve seen a mall.

Police were summoned to a day-care centre where a three-year-old was resisting a  rest.

Did you hear about the fellow whose entire left side was cut off? He’s all right now.

A bicycle can’t stand alone; it’s just two tired.

When a clock is hungry it goes back four seconds.

The guy who fell onto an upholstery machine is now fully    recovered.

He had a photographic memory which was never developed.

When she saw her first strands of grey hair she thought she’d dye.

Acupuncture is a jab well done.  That’s the point of it.

Those who get too big for their pants will be totally exposed in the end.

To the pharmacist….. Have you got something for a headache?

Do you want to start one or stop one?
