U3A course update

The sun came out for us on Wednesday and warmed up the workshop nicely, which was just as well because four of us were squeezed in there working on various projects.

It was a follow up to the U3A course we held back in November at the local library, three of the people wanted to learn more. So we spent a couple of hours cleaning and preparing the surfaces of a table and the top of a chest of drawers for refinishing. We ran out of time before the whole job was done, but even so made a lot of progress removing stains and uneven colour!

Pardon my ignorance here Kim, but what's a U3A course? For those of us in the US, it's not a familiar term.

Hi Cathryn, sorry, didn't realise! U3A stands for the University of the Third Age. A great idea for people either changing direction in their working life or looking to expand their learning experience, more details at http://www.u3a.org.uk/. It's a very active movement where we live.
