New Groups

Ballroom Dancing 

P3A are considering forming a new social ballroom dancing group and would like to hear from members who are interested in supporting it. Couples and singles would be welcome. It is expected that we would meet regularly for either one evening each week or month to be discussed at an initial meeting. If you are interested in attending then please contact Howard by email :

Chess for Beginners

This recommenced in November. As the name implies, absolute beginners are especially welcome, but so too are players with only very limited knowledge. Some of you experienced players too have shown an interest and are welcome to play one another while chess tuition is taking place at the same time (noise of course not being an inhibiting factor!). 

More info from, tel 99076465.                                                      


The idea is to learn about edible plants, fruits and nuts which can be foraged locally.  From a base at the Olive Tree taverna in Polemi, the group mainly goes out and about, visiting local sites to collect plants.  The taverna may also be used for presentations, or to sample ways of preparing and using the group's pickings.

Meet the Neighbours:  Aphrodite Third Age
