When came to taking a break for the summer holidays, some dedicated members of Beaudesert U3A (University of the Third Age) said “No thanks” and got back to their regular activities straight away.
The trivia puzzlers met all through December and early January as per their usual times. The Beaudesert-based cards group and Jimboomba group were also dedicated, some U3A members belong to both groups and had two “fixes” per week!
Mah-jong players were also pretty keen, resuming in both Jimboomba and Beaudesert.
