Description: Tranquil 2 acre setting for
Elizabethan manor house. 2 medieval fish ponds surrounded by
rhododendrons, gunnera, hostas and flag iris. Roses, clematis,
lilies and hellebores surround walled water garden. 120ft herbaceous
border walk informally planted with cottage garden perennials and
annuals. Walled kitchen gardens have been turned into allotments and
old apple store is now tea room.
The gardens provide an appropriate backdrop for
Cadhay House most of which was built in 1550 by John Haydon. He
retained the Great Hall from an earlier house, of which the fine
roof dating between 1420-1470 can be seen in the Roof Chamber. An
Elizabethan long gallery was added early in the 17th century thus
forming a unique and lovely courtyard with statues of Tudor
sovereigns on each wall. ‘The courtyard...with statues of
Henry VIII and his three monarch offspring, Edward, Mary and
Elizabeth...is one of the treasures of Devon'-Sir Simon
Jenkins-England's Thousand Best Houses.
The medieval fish ponds, which form the centre piece of the
gardens, may well have been used by the Warden and Canons of the
Collegiate Church of St Mary of Ottery.

The Musical Heritage of
Thomas Hardy – a presentation by Bonny Sartin
Thomas Hardy's skill as a
fiddle-player is perhaps less well-known than his talents as
novelist, poet and playwright, famed around the world. And Bonny
Sartin is equally familiar to thousands worldwide as frontman
for folk group the Yetties for the best part of fifty years.
Bring these two together and
what do we have? The story of Hardy's music, his instruments and
the characters he created, many involved in traditional song,
music or dance, told with songs, poetry, music and readings.
(And plenty of fun and laughter.)
arrived in Dorset 350 years ago, Huguenots fleeing persecution and
settling in Corscombe to work the land. Today the family is Dorset
through-and-through, with the Yetties ("just four lads from the
village") taking their name from Yetminster. Dorset was the anchor
for a group that travelled the world, sharing folk music wherever
they went. For the last seven years Bonny has undertaken many
speaking engagements in the county "as a way of staying in touch".
Don't miss this one.
Coffee is served from 10.00 to
10.45 followed by talk at 11.00 until noon.

Garden Lovers Group:
Yeo Valley Organic Garden, Bath
Road, Blagdon BS40 7SQ at 9.30a.m. -
one of only a handful of ornamental gardens that is
Soil Association accredited, 6.5 acres of contemporary planting,
quirky sculptures, glorious meadow and posh vegetable patch. Great
views, green ideas.
The garden is one of
contrasts. Formal structural planting is used to create a number of
individual gardens, notably in the glasshouse garden where pleached
Malus 'Red Sentinel' and hedges create strong features.
The more informal parts of
the garden are designed to give a relaxed contemporary feel and
include a perennial meadow, a birch grove and streamside garden.
In summer the bronze and
gravel gardens provide the “wow” factor. The gravel garden is
filled with colour, shape and movement achieved by a tapestry of
planting. Autumnal fireworks are provided by late perennial
seedheads, grasses and the tea crab apple avenue. Grasses are used
extensively to reflect the surrounding landscape and link the
garden to the Mendip to the south and to Blagdon Lake to the
Coach, entrance to garden and tip to driver
approximately £14. Coach will leave Holmbush carpark at 9.30a.m.

could go to the Yeo Valley Canteen where table bookings are
essential. Lunch is from 12.30 – 2.00 pm and their contact number
is 01761 461425 or

can no longer go. Also ask her for help if you have been unable to

Friday 12th October
The Heritage Coast branch of
the U3A is holding a coffee morning for existing and potential
new members on Friday 12th October at 10.00am at the Woodmead
Halls in Lyme Regis.
A happy social occasion,
this offers members and not-yet-members the chance to learn
more of the leisure and educational opportunities that are
available with membership of your local U3A. You can come to
chat, and talk to representatives of the many activity groups.
You can join new groups or even consider starting your own.
The committee members and plenty of group leaders will be
there. At 10.00 there's a special welcome
for new(ish) members – those who have joined in the last 12 to
18 months – with cake not available to other members ...
U3A coffee mornings are
always enjoyable and interesting – and there's no charge for
Friday 9th November
Talk and AGM:
The Red Arrows – an
illustrated talk by Phil Holt
The Red Arrows aerobatic team has won the hearts of a nation
and is renowned throughout the world, acting as ambassadors
for Great Britain and supporting UK industry by demonstrating
the capabilities of British equipment and expertise. Since
their creation in 1965, the Red Arrows have flown over 4,000
displays in 52 countries.
Phil's illustrated presentation takes us through the events
that led to the creation of this exceptional team of pilots.
He then introduces the men and women in the famous red suits,
who make precision their profession, teamwork their science
and aerobatics their art form. He will bring some official Red
Arrows Merchandise for sale.
An Air Traffic Controller for almost 40 years, Phil served at
seven locations including Heathrow. He was a reservist in the
R.A.F., a flying instructor and involved in Maritime Air
Region operations; he can count among his flying achievements
parachute dropping and flying for the St John’s Ambulance air
wing. He continues as an active pilot and is a Flying Display
Director, involved with the show circuit for over 30 years.
Phil's talk will begin at 11.00am. Beforehand, at 10.00am, the
AGM will be held: hear a summary of the year's activities
across the many groups, monthly talks, trips and visits; learn
of the (good) state of the U3A's finances; ask questions, make
suggestions, and elect (or change) the committee. Coffee will
be available at about 10.30am.
members fourth annual Christmas Quiz
In a dark cupboard where the
U3A stores its Christmas decorations, Quizmaster John
Bartholomew has had eleven months to brood on new and unexpected
questions. He will emerge, blinking but raring to go, to
mastermind the 2018 quiz.
The quiz is for U3A members
only, with participation strictly by pre-booked ticket. Tickets
will first be available at the AGM on Friday 9th November. Any
spaces left after the AGM will be offered through the Members’
Newsflash. The last day for booking tickets will be Tuesday 4th
There will be 18 tables with 6
people on each. You can book individually, or as a pair or even
threesome, joining a table with other members – this can be a
very social occasion. Or you can book as a pre-arranged full
team of 6. In that case, a booking will be taken only if the
team representative brings a written list of the names of all
members of that team at the time of booking: no exceptions will
be made! Incomplete teams will be put aside until all other team
and independent bookings have been taken.
Payment of £4.00 per person is
made on arrival, with ticket, at the quiz, not at time of
booking. Be aware that parking in Woodmead Halls car park costs
£1.00 per hour if you don't have a Resident's Permit.
snack-with-wine-or-soft-drinks will be served at lunchtime:
vegetarian food will be available if noted at booking. Please
bring your own food if you have other dietary needs.

The Heritage Coast Lyme Regis U3A currently has approximately 45 active groups covering a wide variety of subjects. There are a number of study groups including Geology, Current Affairs, Opera Appreciation. Whilst others help maintain and improve fitness, such as Tennis, the Walking Groups and more.

Two long standing Group Leaders are now
standing down. The Committee wish to thank John Wood who led
the Jazz Group and Pam Moseley, the Relaxation Group until the
summer, for over 10 years each. They have both earned a well
deserved retirement and we do hope we see them at events in
Pam has sent the following which should
give us all food for thought:
However busy we are we should find space to have time to
ourselves. If we feel weary or stressed we should try and sit
quietly, slow down our breathing and just let our minds go
blank. If the weather is good find a corner of the garden and
just sit and watch the birds or flowers opening in the warm
sunlight. We are so lucky to live by the sea and one of the
best ways to relax and wind down is to go down to the sea
shore and watch the waves washing up and down the beach. Try
it sometime I am sure you will enjoy and benefit from
it. Pam Moseley

the basis on which these trips are organised:
We are aiming to manage all communication through email. We will seek to book for shows which are suggested to us by members and/or which we think would attract enough to fill a coach. We will always secure tickets, on a sale or return basis, in advance of payment to the theatre, to allow members time to firstly, express an
interest and then commit to the event. We will then only pay for tickets which have, effectively, been ordered. At this point the cost of the trip, ticket and travel, becomes the responsibility of the individual member. We can try to `sell-on` tickets but we cannot guarantee this. JB

Liz Jones Memorial Walks
Liz Jones loved
walking and sourced over seventy circular walks in the area. For several years she and her husband David led the U3A Walking Group and after she died in April 2013 members of this group decided
to make some of her walks available to a wider audience as a tribute.
The Group would like to thank David Jones for his leadership and all his support for this project - rewalking each route
and checking our efforts. Our thanks also go to Susie Gamble for creating the model for the walk maps, Sue Wilson for her layouts and technical expertise and Maurice Liddiard for coordinating the project.
