We have just been advised by the Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice that they are holding their second Open Gardens Campaign in 2019.

 

As well as hoping for a good turnout of visitors to the gardens though the summer they  are currently looking for garden owners who would be interested in opening their gardens.  Gardens need only be open for a few hours to the public on a day of their choosing from May-September to help raise money for their charity. (If individuals would prefer not to open publicly but would like to hold a private ‘garden party’ with friends and family we would also welcome them as part of our overall open gardens campaign.)


So, if you like gardens or gardening why not join in and have a few enjoyable hours this summer?

Surrey Uni Logo   An Invitation by Surrey Healthy Ageing Research Partnership (SHARP)

 
Natalie Riddell is a Lecturer at the University of Surrey with a keen interest in healthy ageing and the role the immune system plays in this. Her department is hosting an open event for older adults from the local and surrounding community. The aim is to discuss and engage older adults in our research and Milford U3A members are invited.
 
They held a similar event in 2018 that was very well attended by members of the Guildford U3A. You will have the chance to hear about their research, see posters, have the opportunity to ask questions and find out what it means to take part in research.
 
The event takes place on 3rd April 2019, from 4-6pm,  tea, coffee and nibbles will be provided.

Surrey Oral History Project - The Great Warww1

Moira Nairn of the Surrey Heritage Centre in Woking wrote to advise us of a Heritage Lottery Project, Surrey in the Great War: A County Remembers that may be of interest to our members:

 

The Great War’s Impact 1914-1950s. 

Do you have a family story to tell? 

 
The main project explores all aspects of the impact of the war on the county and more information on this can be seen on our  website https://www.surreyinthegreatwar.org.uk/

The project’s Oral History component records people’s memories and stories about their and their families’ experiences during the Great War and its aftermath. I’m keen to make contact with anyone who may have a story to share with us. I’ve included some detail from our project information in the link below.
 
I’d be grateful if you could spread information about the Oral History project across the U3A community and invite anyone who would be interested in talking to us to email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with their contact details. I’ll take it from there!
