ON Monday, July 6, the Oberon U3A (University of the Third Age) group FFF and Y (Fleece, Fibre, Felt and Yarn) will hold its first meeting since COVID restrictions were lightened.

The group gathers in the Robert Hooper Centre in Fleming Street from 10am to 3pm on the first Monday and the third Friday of each month.

On July 6, Ann Cassar from Spun Out Fibres will be bringing her "Shop on Wheels" which caters to people interested in knitting, crochet, spinning, weaving, felting and dyeing.

FFF and Y invites other interested local artisans and craftspeople to access the Spun Out shop on July 6.

Apart from general stock, Ann will bring particular items that have been ordered prior to the day.

Check out her website at Spun Out Fibres, and contact her if there is something that you need.

Otherwise pop in to Robert Hooper on Monday. Social distancing will be in place.

Oberon has a lively U3A that has grown significantly over the years since its beginnings in 2013.

U3A provides leisure and learning activities for the over 50s.
