A Matlock group has celebrated give glorious years with a party.

Matlock Area U3A (University of the Third Age) celebrated its fifth birthday at Matlock Golf Club.

The group began in September 2007 with a meeting of the local 50+ Forum, organised by Maudie Behrens. Two weeks later, a steering committee was elected at a public meeting and the work of recruitment began, under the leadership of Frank Hemming and a small dedicated team.

The organisations arranges activities such as scrabble, mah–jong, bridge, folk–dancing, tap–dancing, gardening and bowls.

Further information on the group is available by or ring Janet King on 01629 57065.
