Shall we heat or shall we eat, tonight?  This is the quandary more and more families face when deciding on what to spend the little resources they have. Many will turn off the heating to save enough money to eat.  More and more are turning to Food Banks to be able to feed their families.  Why are we becoming less self-sufficient?.  No gardens to grow stuff in, or are we just not taught how to produce our own.?  Are we in a generation that has come to EXPECT help from Council? Government? or whoever is handing out today?.  Obviously the rapid rise in the cost of living is the reason, but should we be seeking an alternative solution?

This debate is being run by the U3A Discussion Group who meet monthly to discuss a previously-planned topic.  Their meetings have continued via Zoom during lockdown, but there is nothing quite like a “live” version, on a subject that is very topical.

Light refreshments will be served.  There is no charge to attend but as numbers are limited please book your place by emailing pamrobinson977@hotmail.com

Please mark the subject, “Festival Debate”. Doors open 2.15pm
