Architecture and Archaeology Group
In October Keith Barton told us that he and Sheila had enjoyed leading the A & A Group for many years - almost since the beginning when the Keyworth U3A was launched nearly 10 years ago!  However, for a number of reasons they need to relinquish their role from the end of this year to give themselves more time for other activities.  In consequence the Group needs to find a new Group leader.  Peter Harding, Groups Coordinator

Message from Keith and Sheila Barton
Thank you to all those who have supported this group over the last 9 years, we hope you have enjoyed it, and that it might continue with new leadership.  We have written a brief history of the Architecture and Archaeology Group from the launch in 2009 to the present, it can be read on the A&A webpage.  Keith and Sheila Barton
