3rd Thursday of the month
Leader: Jo Wright
The Discussion Group meets in a first floor sitting room, on the third Thursday of each month and the meetings are held from 2p.m. to 4p.m. with a break for tea. We usually number about 12 people at each meeting.
We all suggest topics and choose the favourites to discuss. The subjects are very varied and in the next six months we are discussing town centres, gambling addiction, and ’screens versus paper’ among others.
Members volunteer to lead each discussion and the details of our meetings are in Devizes U3A Newsletter and below.
20th February – Cause of Town Centre’s Decline – High overheads, charity shops, online shopping? Can it be stopped?
19th March ‘Are today’s mothers as good as they used to be in the past?’
16th April ‘How far is social media responsible for the polarisation public discourse?’ Is this polarisation to be welcomed or mitigated? If the latter, how?
