Wigtown U3A Current Affairs Group


We are part of the U3A (University of the 3rd Age) organisation, specifically here in Wigtownshire, southwest Scotland.  Here is our main website.

The U3A is a national organisation (website here) with nearly half a million members.

We are a small (in number!) group interested in discussing Current Affairs.  This website that you are looking at now is a summary and record of what we have been doing recently.

We have only set up this site recently and it is in a state of flux (polite way of saying it ain’t finished!)  The intention is to update it every month or so.

The reason it is called “myexperienceof.net” is that the site belongs to one of the group.  He named it but no longer uses it for its previous purpose and so it is now ours to use as we wish.  We get to use it for free as long as we keep the name as it is registered.

On the menu you should see the topics we have covered.  There are usually several pages to each topic- hovering with a mouse and/or a click/tap will show you the sub-pages within each topic.

We have lifted much of what is here from emails sent by the Group Leader prior to our monthly meeting.  These emails contain(ed) background information and reading.

It would be helpful if, when looking at things here and you find a broken link, you got in touch via the Contact Form.  We do check but as this is “Current Affairs” some of the linked to articles and sites may grow old and disappear…..Thanks.
