U3A initiative gets resources for all

Strong lobbying by the 300 members of the Kiama U3A has brought about an $18,000 grant from the State Government for new audio visual equipment, which will be installed at the North Kiama Neighbourhood Centre.

The Council-owned Centre is the home of U3A, with many of its classes, and its monthly talks, being held there. They installed the equipment currently being used at the Centre.

“This funding will allow us to upgrade our audio-visual equipment, making it a lot easier for our members and other groups who also use the North Kiama Neighbourhood Centre,” says Kiama U3A President Gloria Jeffrey.

“We will have a new projector, automated screen, sound system and computer to run presentations and courses.”

With Term 2 starting 2 May, there will soon be an opportunity to join the wide range of classes, which include Tai Chi Qigong, a poetry group, dancing, forensic science, Mah Jong, a book club, meditation, fine art history and appreciation, music for pleasure and a class addressing security surveillance and your privacy.

Details: Enrolments 24 April 2-4pm and 25 April 2-3pm, North Kiama Community Centre, Meehan Drive.
