All our monthly open meetings are free for everyone, both members and non-members. So, encourage your friends and neighbours to come along for this fascinating talk and an opportunity for informal chat over coffee about the latest Duns and District U3A group activities. For the 2019/20 season, these meetings will take place on the third Tuesday of every month.

Next meeting: Tuesday 17 September at 10am. The speakers will be Ann and Kevin Mills of the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, a pioneering conservation organisation, dedicated to the protection of wildlife and the preservation of habitats in East Africa.
