Cardigan U3A Local History meet monthly in the Coracle Hall in Llechryd at 2.30pm (unless we are out on a visit). Our meetings cover all aspect of local history from houses to transport and everything else in between.

We are a lively group of all ages and abilities and our interests are even wider. We have an annual programme which is put together by a small group of members with ideas from everyone. Members get a copy of the new programme around December time so they can plan their diaries accordingly. During the summer we like to have a bit of a social where we ask for suggestions for the next years programme, people are more likely to come up with ideas when they have a large slice of cake in their hands

Our meetings are held on the 3rd Monday in the month, usually at the Coracle Hall, Llechryd, (opposite the garage) at 2.30 pm. Our programme has a mix of topical speakers and visits out to places of local interest.

Our Group Leaders are Harold Bellamy and Jo Hutchings, who keep members informed as to where we are meeting, times, parking and anything else that they might need to know.

For our next meeting on Monday 15th January 2018 we will be having a Members Show and Tell entitled ‘When I was Young’

Monday 19th February 2018: Helen Palmer, from Ceredigion Archives will again be regaling us about things from the past. Helen is a very amusing and engaging speaker so expect a very lively session!
