Stories for Pleasure


Priory Campus, Pontefract Road, Lundwood, Barnsley, S71 5PN

Who we are

If you enjoy story writing and are willing to share your work, our stories for pleasure is the group for you.

u3a Logo


Our name has changed so that we are inclusive of oral traditions, as well as promoting accessibility for all! At our meetings we share with each other what we have written since the previous meeting. We believe that every member has a worthwhile contribution to make and everyone is given the opportunity to do that. This is not a group for anyone with a writing ego!

We all have a story to tell, a moment in our own history, a treasured memory, or a flight of fancy. Whether you would like to write it down or just come along and tell us the tale, you will find a warm welcome. You will be offered suggestions for the next session but you are also free to explore any subject you choose.

Through our stories we experience laughter as well as sad, tender and poignant moments. The emphasis is on sharing.

Should you wish to come along and see if this is a group for you, you will be made most welcome.

Tuesday (fortnightly) 6.30pm.
