News from the Groups

Swimming Group: Come and Exercise.

So another term has ended and I am sure we will enjoy ourselves over the next few weeks. In the New Year we may feel that we need some regular exercise to shift any over indulgence. What better way than a regular swim as part of the U3A Swimming Group.

We start again at Llanishen Leisure Centre on 7th January 2020. Despite the Welsh Assembly Government redirecting some of the funds away from 'Free over 60s swimming', we have been able to agree with Llanishen Leisure Centre, a special price of £2 per swim.

We swim every Tuesday at Llanishen between 14.45 - 15.45pm, during school term time only. If you would like to join us then please contact Jeff swimming@cardiffu3a.org.uk
