University offers new opportunity

FILEY and District University of the Third Age have renewed their appeal for members after launching a new class in Hunmanby.

The organisation, providing learning experiences for people no longer in full time employment, are set to hold computing workshops in Hunmanby Library.

The computer classes - aimed at beginners - start next month, with family history groups also set for the village.

Nina Sheeran, the Hunmanby group co-ordinator, said: “It is a joint initiative being run in partnership with Hunmanby Library.

“Members can come along each week for help and advice about the basics.

“This is a great opportunity for members in Hunmanby who are new to computing to take that first important step.”

“People have welcomed these extended range of groups in the village for the autumn and winter when it’s more difficult get out and about and learning together group allows everyone to share and develop their knowledge and skills.”

“We operate as part of Bridlington University of the Third Age, so members can access over 70 activities going on there too.”

Run by local volunteers, the university also includes theatre, singing and creative writing courses, with its walking group, due to visit the site of the planned South Dale wind farm development on Friday, September 23.

Anyone wanting more information about the university should contact Hunmanby Library or Nina Sheeran on (01723) 891893 or e-mail
