  • For 2020, the usual Garden Spectacular run by the Bathurst Garden Club was replaced by an Expo, at Berry Park. Dianna Baillie’s Bonsai Buddies group held a very successful display, providing excellent publicity for the Bathurst U3A and Bonsais in general.
    Even though the weather was very inclement, the Bonsai Buddies were inundated with interested visitors and residents. See the photos below for the wonderful work that the Bonsai Buddies have achieved in their class.
    The Bonsai Buddies would like to thank all their partners who provided support, from making stands to helping set up and dismantle the display.

  • The July issue of the U3AAA.
  • Read what’s happening in other U3A’s in NSW, and what our umbrella organisation – U3A Network NSW Inc – is up to. This is the first issue of Newslink to be linked on our website. Hopefully it will be the first of many, as the newsletters are very informative. [Note that the newsletter is a fairly large file, and could take a while to download.]
  • It was with a heavy heart that the Bathurst U3A learn of the passing of active U3A member Bob Henry. Among his many achievements with the U3A, he has worked tirelessly on the committee, helped Gordon develop the Bowls class, and very recently, ran the Table Tennis and Aqua Aerobics classes. We offer Rhonda and her family our deepest and sincere condolences. [26 July, 2018]

  • Farewell John and Wyn Stockman left for Noosa in mid 2017. Lucky them, when we freeze in our sub-zero winter mornings. We were lucky enough to catch a photo of them at a get-together before they left.
  • We received a nice testimonial from the Read and Share Class the other day (Term 3 2018), that they had read the newsletter online and commented on what a good website we have, and whoever is running it is doing a good job – how all the links work and how good it looked overall. They said that they had looked at other group’s websites, which were less attractive and that their links did not work.

Grant from the NSW Government

Due to some very hard work from Sue and Lindsay of our committee, the Bathurst U3A has been awarded a grant of $4000. The grants are administered by the Bathurst U3A Council, and are from monies from the local Bathurst Panthers and RSL clubs. The grants are to assist local community clubs and organisations.

The photo shows Lindsay receiving the grant from Norm Mann of Bathurst Panthers and Ron Hollybone of Bathurst RSL.
