Third Age

The Grand Forth Valley University of the Third Age (U3A) quiz is to be held on Friday, April 17 at 2 p.m. in the Mayfield Centre, St Ninians, Stirling. This is your chance to give the answers to questions and help your team towards a prize (not as valuable as those offered on TV quiz shows, but to be cherished nevertheless). It will stimulate memory and thinking processes, encourage contribution within a team and offer a challenge, some fun, and of course, tea and cake. That’s covering all the reasons for being in the U3A, so, even if you have yet to join, come along to the quiz. Teams will be formed on the day so the more the merrier.
