Law For Fun 20th June

On 20th June 2019 John will talk through some of the basic components of our legal system ie sources of law, different types of court, basic criminal liability and the rules of evidence as they apply to confessions. John will also go through a high carriage miscarriage of justice case study (as suggested by a member) but will end the session on a “fun note”!

Sunday Strollers 16th June

Sunday Strollers will meet at Maghull Station (old station) to catch the 9.49 train on Sunday to Moorfields.  They will then walk down to the Pier Head and catch the 11 o’clock ferry to Seacombe.  They will then walk to New Brighton which is about 3 miles and have something to eat.  There are plenty of different restaurants to choose from.  This is the main reason this walk has been picked this month as Sunday is Fathers Day so it may be difficult to accommodate the whole group together.

Family History Open Day

The Family History Group held a successful open day last Friday.  People who attended were helped to progress with their family tree by members of the group.  Feedback received was very positive.  Pam also gave a very informative talk on her family tree.

I am working on my family tree and I have been so grateful for the help I have received from members of the group, this is what the U3A is all about.  The leaders are available at the coffee mornings on a Tuesday, so if you need some direction on how to start a family tree, why not have a word with them.
