The Ukulele Group has got off to a fine start. At the second meeting in April ten members attended. Terry Ferguson is the Group Leader and the one hour sessions have been a joyful blend of learning and laughter. The perfect U3A interest group! New members are welcome.

Playing the ukulele is rapidly becoming a popular pastime and the N.W. Regional Summer School in Penrith provided a course of instruction this year to cater for the interest.


Meets 1st and 3rd Fridays, 10:00am, Padiham Road Methodist Church, Ightenhill, Burnley.

If anyone is interested in joining a complete beginners’ course please contact the group (email link above).
