The Discussion Group met Monday evenings at the beginning of the month – but now gone are those cosy evenings where friends met to discuss various topics and enjoy the hospitality that Peter Davidson provided.
Over the years he has come up with a huge variety of subjects including the following:
Is there a future for the EU? (2015)
Is obedience a force for good or evil? (2016)
Is the increase in use of social media, press regulations and restrictions on university free speech threatening democracy? (2017)
In good spirit, whether in agreement or disagreement, and accompanied by a glass of wine ‘to loosen the tongue’, arguments were listened to and discussed. Unanimous conclusions were rare but differences were forgotten once the discussion ended and coffee and homemade cake were served.
Regrettably, due to events beyond his control, the group has had to disband. This is a great loss as not only was the group well-liked by its members but more so because Peter is one of our longest serving group leaders and most respected member of our U3A.
Thank you, Peter, for inviting members into your home for all those years.
