 Latin for Beginners
Would you like to learn Latin?
It is hoped to start a new beginners’ group to enable you to read
Latin Literature, like the Aeneid or Metamorphoses.
If you already know some Latin, but not much, perhaps you might
like to join such a group after a few weeks.
The book we will be using is
N. R. R. Oulton’s ‘So you really want to learn Latin?’,
which is in 3 books.
It is intended to hold the classes weekly with a break for ‘terms’.See web page  for more details

Reading Latin
Perhaps you already know quite a bit of Latin and would
like to tackle the literature straightaway?
Or even have a go at some ‘Unseens’?
It is hoped to start a new Group called ‘Reading Latin’
to enable you to do this. What are we going to read?
That is up to you, we will decide when we get together.
Sessions could be weekly or fortnightly in ‘terms’

Greek for Beginners
Would you like to learn Classical Greek? It is hoped to start a new
beginners’ group to enable you to read Greek Literature such as Homer,
Sophocles, Thucydides or even Plato. Note that this is Classical Greek, not
New Testament Greek; New Testament Greek classes are already in progress,
but not with the U3A.
The book that we shall use will be Wilding ‘Greek for Beginners’ or,
depending on the numbers, this may be my own course. It is intended to hold
the classes weekly with a break for ‘terms’.

Calligraphy
Are you interested in forming a new calligraphy group?
Have you done it before?
Could you teach others?
Are you interested in giving it a try?
We would learn how to write with dip pens
and then hopefully produce cards, wall hanging etc.
If so please contact me and I will take it forward.
There is already someone willing to be the Co-ordinator, so we just need people and a venue!

Guided MeditationDo you want to be less anxious or have a little more calmness in your life?
Come and join our friendly group to learn ways of overcoming anxieties and
discovering ways to still the body and calm the mind.
It is said to have considerable health benefits too.
We will gradually explore some of the different ways of meditating and
take a brief look at ideas of the ancient sages.
