Dear Editor,

I refer to the Magazine of the Third Age Trust (U3A News) and an article by the Chairman, Ian Searle (issue 92  Autumn 2010) :  Research the Benefits of Learning. An extract follows but it would be preferable for it to be read in its entirety.

QUOTE:

.........”Learning is an essential part of a civilised society....... Learning is not confined to learning job-specific skills.”

“The contribution of informal adult education such as that offered by U3As, is seen as a very positive force for well-being which has clear benefits.”

The Ethos of the U3A continues within the Photography Group, of which I am a member, and experienced in other Groups within Harrogate U3A.

Members share/learn with others the various aspects of photography, and with the ever-increasing advancement in technological invention there is much to learn and hopefully digest.
