Dining Group (Luncheon)

The Dining Group.
        The Dining Group provides a pleasant social activity which enables members to meet together over a meal.  Meals are arranged on a monthly basis, generally to local restaurants or pubs with an attempt go keep the price within reasonable bounds. If members have difficulty with transport, usually lifts can be arranged with someone living in their area. During the Summer months we try to arrange some evening meals to take advantage of the lighter nights but in Winter we only organise lunch time meals.
        The group is friendly and welcoming and members have the chance to meet each other on a social basis and also learn a little about the food available in our local area. Over time the group will sample different cuisines from divergent nationalities to possibly broaden their palate. In May we visit The Red Lion in High Lane.
        Dates have been fixed until October and information about these can be seen at the main U3A meetings at the 'Dining Group Table' where the bookings and payments are taken. People are given the menu and costs, make their selections which are then passed on to the restaurants and they receive their menu choice back when attending the lunch or dinner.

        On June 27th we had our lunch at the Andrew Arms, Compstall. Everyone agreed it was a very good meal and can certainly be recommended.
        On July 20th we are going to Browns Cafe Bar & Restaurant for an Evening Meal, anyone wishing to go can put their name down at the meeting on July 12th or telephone Edna by Friday 14th at the latest.
        There will not be a meal out in August.
        On September 26th we shall be going to The Waltzing Weasel, Birch Vale.
        The final meal of 2006 will be on Thursday October 19th when we shall be going for a lunchtime meal at the Little Mill Inn, Rowarth.
