Are you able to accommodate beginners
Yes the idea is all levels, Instruction can be give. I’m intermediate on a good day so will not be able to help advanced people much!
Thanks so much, Catherine for taking the time and trouble to write your notes – which sound just like you talking, by the way. They’ve taken me out into the countryside and shown me what’s going on. As you know, I have very little knowledge of plants (always been looking at birds) but google shows me what they look like. If you can bear it, please carry on writing. I’m sure a lot of people appreciate it.
Eileen Ann’s poem was lovely, as expected. She really is multi-talented – playing various musical instruments, and of course, her singing, and now she is also a poet. Whatever next will she delight us with?
A great story from Lesley Barklay, though I wasn’t sure it was a poem? Perhaps I misunderstood, and it wasn’t supposed to be.
Hi Jenny. You need really to comment on the page you are looking at – so your comment on the poem is attached to Lesley’s piece, and that itself comes from Creative Writing, and is not intended to be a poem!
Excellent. The reading is a bit formal – there could be some pauses to make more sense.

Absolutely lovely and how true. Have travelled to other scenic places but the views from the Zig Zag, Beacon/Burgundy roads and The Ball always take my breath away. Sometimes when it’s on your doorstep you take it for granted.
Minehead is a beautiful peaceful community and this piece is a fitting homage to that sentiment.
Congratulations to everyone on the creation and launch of this new web site. It definitely takes Minehead & District U3A into the 21st century.
Described my 3 year old grandson perfectly.
Depicts Autumn/Winter so well
Thank you Martin for publishing Peace in Minehead
Hoglets and Prickle just love learning new nouns. Thanks Kay
Very interesting, who knew bees live at a balmy 36 degress C in the winter.
Clearly the place to be(e). – cough, apologises

That’s a lovely story and video about La Befana
Thank you , this is interesting.
There will be a presentation to the Local History Group (David Temple, convenor) in January on this – watch the News on this website!
Great to see such a variety of interpretations for a ‘different’ Christmas.
Very interesting, an excellent historic record.
My six are:-
I can’t find Local History on the list of Interest Groups. Am I looking in the wrong place, please?
Hi Kit. The Interest Groups page is not a collection of individual groups, but groups by loose type. You will find Local History under ‘Arts and Humanities’, or in the Full List of Groups, which is the first menu option under Interest Groups.
I wonder whether our thoughts are clouded by ‘the light at the end of the tunnel’ syndrome!? Getting back to ‘normal’ appears tantalisingly close and it is all we can think of after practically a year of pandemic worry. Are we close to going back to life as we were? This is a question we could do with debating.
I’m registered. I shall be watching out for matters of interest and joining in as appropriate. Thank you
Well done, Anthony. Good to see you here!
