The Dining Group provides a pleasant
social activity which enables
members to meet together over a meal. Meals are arranged on a
basis, generally to local restaurants or pubs in an attempt to keep
the price within reasonable bounds. If members have
transport, usually lifts can be arranged with someone living in their
area. During the Summer months we try to arrange some evening

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
different cuisines from divergent nationalities to possibly broaden
Information about venues and dates can
at the main U3A meetings at the 'Dining Group Table' where the bookings
and payments are taken. Members are given the menu and costs,
their selections which are then passed on to the restaurants and they
receive their menu choice back when attending the lunch or dinner.
