to WHAT WE DO
German Group in 2010
The German Group has been in existence since 2001 when High Lane U3A first started. We are a group of about 10 members, all with varying abilities, who meet on most Fridays at 42 Bowfell Drive at 10 o'clock. Our meetings are light-hearted and sociable but we do learn something new every week.
We start off with general conversation on what we have been doing during the week, then proceed to reading a text which forms the basis for further discussion, leading to an improvement in our "Landeskunde" (knowledge of the country).
Some of the members have formed lasting friendships with families in Forchheim in Franconia, a town with which we have strong links. Some members of the group will be taking part in the Travel Group's trip to the Rhineland in May 2010.
This is a very sociable group and we enjoy eating out, our last outing being a very enjoyable Christmas meal at the Wycliffe Hotel in Edgeley.
