The Digital Photography Group, meets for two hours on Monday afternoons at 2:30. The DPG is a recent addition to the Hall’s list of user groups having moved in last autumn. It moved from the Resource Centre in Victoria Rd to take advantage of the Hall’s space and AV equipment.
As the group belongs to the U3A, membership is restricted to its members. For those who have no idea what the U3A is – it is a non-political, non-religious organisation which began in Toulouse in 1972 to promote well-being amongst older people, no longer in full time employment. It moved to Britain in 1982 with the creation of the Third Age Trust, which set up regional bodies. The Bridlington group started in 2007 and grew from an initial 300 members to 800 members and more than 90 interest groups by November 2014, making it the largest organisation in the Bridlington Area. Although aimed at retirees, recent age discrimination legislation has opened membership to any age, but most of its activities do tend to take place during the day, making the activities a little inaccessible for full time workers. Anyone interested in joining can visit the Drop-in Session, every Tuesday, midday to 2:00 in the Victoria Rd Resource Centre or go to: www.u3abridlington.me.uk for more information.
