THE work of Coastwatch was the subject at a recent meeting of Skegness U3A.
Chris Lines explained that Coastwatch was set up in Cornwall in 1994 as the result of a tragedy. Since then it has grown and today 11,000 miles of the coast are watched.
The Skegness Coastwatch operates seven days a week from 9am to 6pm during the summer and from 9am to 4pm during the winter.
The aim is to be the eyes and ears along the coast and volunteers are trained to spot, report and plot all incidents
Anyone over the age of 18 can apply and new recruits are always welcome.
Meanwhile, the U3A Theatre Group have had two enjoyable evenings at the Embassy recently - first up at the ‘Last Night of the Proms’ concert and again for the hilarious ‘The Producers’. They also enjoyed a Neil Diamond tribute show and supper at the Southview Hotel.
The Solitaires recently enjoyed a Sunday lunch at Catchwater Meadows and last Monday visited The Old Pottery and Craft Centre at Wrangle where, as well as enjoying a traditional afternoon tea, some of the members stocked up on some Christmas gifts.
