The next Coffee Morning will be on Monday 10th May from 10.30am via Zoom. We will be looking forward to local Theatre productions during the summer and discussing “What’s next for Matlock Area u3a” in the chat rooms.

Zooming in details will be sent closer to the date and we hope you will be able to join in.
