Sherburn & Villages U3A News The centre of Sherburn in Elmet was buzzing with activity on the afternoon of Thursday 20th October. All the car parks were full and the Eversley Centre was bursting at the seams. Sherburn and Villages U3A were holding their annual Open Day, providing an opportunity for people from the surrounding villages to sample the various delights of the fifty plus interest groups on offer. While representatives from many groups displayed their wares and invited people to join them, the noise level escalated and enthusiasm abounded. Well over 330 people attended, either to renew their annual subscription, to join the U3A for the first time, or just to browse the crowded hall, look and listen. Tea, coffee and biscuits were provided throughout the afternoon by a pro-active team, including a personal delivery service for those chained to their desks. Thanks go to all those who helped – either setting up and later taking down the tables, chairs and displays, taking subscriptions, signing up new members or providing refreshments. Thanks also go to those who helped to publicise the event by sticking up posters and delivering leaflets. There is no doubt about it, the Sherburn & Villages U3A Open Day was a resounding success.
