The Journey Begins

We are a collection of amateur writers who belong to Beeston U3A’s Writing For Pleasure Interest Group.  We enjoy playing with words, using our imaginations and trying out different styles and genres.  Our members, if they so wish, can have their work showcased on this website so that their writing is available to all members of Beeston U3A, to other U3As around the country and to our friends and families.

Happy Reading!


2022- A new year.

We finished 2021 with face-to-face meetings and we were all looking forward positively to 2022. All of us were fully vaccinated and the situation in the country seemed back to ‘normal’.

Then along came the ‘Omicron Variant’ which sounds like a science fiction plague. Christmas holidays abroad were cancelled, the speed of infection was significantly faster than other, earlier variants, the NHS was, once again, overwhelmed and we held our first meeting in January on Zoom. Back to square one?

We have a full programme for 2022 and, hopefully, we can enjoy it, once again, gathered together at the Pearson Centre, Beeston. Fingers and toes crossed for February.
