Golf club car park: PLEASE be very careful when driving through the car parks at the Golf Club and follow the arrows to avoid head-on confrontations.
Leith Valley is a popular parking spot for people who used to park on the road now taken over by the cycle way. That doesn’t leave a lot of spaces for U3A — especially for our big courses. You can help the situation by car pooling. People who park on the clearway, opposite the Bowling Club, will likely be ticketed by DCC.

Friends of the Medical School
U3A Members are exactly the right group to help the trainee doctors in their studies. “Friends” help students with interviewing and sharing experiences about coping with situations - of which we all have much know-how by this time in our lives. If you are not already a “Friend” (my wife and I have been “Friends” (of the Med School!)) for several years, please collect a brochure from the registration desk at U3A courses and see what you can do to keep Otago’s reputation at the top of the country’s rankings.
