Beccles U3A January Meeting

HoW lasers work – the light fantastic. Dr Stephen Ashworth, a Senior Lecturer UEA, delivered an extremely informative presentation on the subject of lasers and how they work. He incorporated a series of practical demonstrations throughout his talk and managed to explain this somewhat complex subject in terms we could all understand. “Laser” is an acronym for

light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation. A laser is created when the electrons in atoms in special glasses, crystals, or gases absorb energy from an electrical current or another laser and become “excited.” The excited electrons move from a lower- energy orbit to a higher-energy orbit around the atom’s nucleus. When they return to their normal or “ground” state, the electrons emit photons (particles of light). Lasers are now used in optical

disk drives, laser printers, barcode scanners, DNA sequencing instruments,

FISHER Folk & Acoustic meets monthly, usually the last Wednesday, in the atmospheric Fisher Theatre Cellar and gives local musicians and singers the chance of a 20 minute performance slot in front of a receptive audience. The January session featured an eclectic mix, opening with traditional Irish and Scottish tunes from Daniel Moriarty of guitar and fiddle. Paul Gillings followed with virtuoso renditions of roots and blues on harmonica covering Rory Mcleod numbers and his own composition “Fatherhood”. DnA (Del & Ali) made their debut in the Cellar with fine covers of some contemporary

songs on vocals and piano, including “Make me feel your love” and “Many rivers to cross”. Peter Hood, on guitar, writes his own East Coast songs, often on current issues such as “Pass me by” on homelessness and “They're gone” about missing persons. The band Sark closed the session with a line up of sax, guitar, rhythm box, keys and vocals covering some recent songs such as “Valerie” and “Blame it on me”. Entry to this is £5. Tickets can be booked online. Performers not charged and must be pre-booked. Book on their website www. fishertheatreorg or by email

place on Easter Sunday (21st April) starting at 2.30pm, and will involve not only Mr Jingles’ fantastic magic and Punch and Judy shows, but also an all day bouncy castle and an Easter Egg Hunt with a difference. No scratching about in the Southwold gorse for mini-eggs this year – each child will search for their individually numbered make-believe egg which they can then trade in for the real one of their choice. Every child, no matter how little, will end up with an egg, and if that wasn’t sweet enough, there will also be Easter cakes for all. Tickets for this extravaganza will be £3 per child, available in advance or on the day. on May 12th, from 12 noon

until 5pm, there will be the Annual Volvo Classic Car Rally, and all owners of classic cars (not just those big Swedish monsters) are invited to take part. Massive

amounts of display space are available behind the café so no need to worry about scratches or bumps to your pride and joy. Sunday July 14th will see the

welcome return of Suffolk’s finest busker bar none, the fabulous Felix Simpson. Felix plays an amazing range of music old and new, is a great singer and an accomplished guitarist (who else would tackle the work of Mark knopfler or David Gilmour and pull it off?). Look him up on Facebook, then put the date in your diary. In August, on the 11th,

prepare to be entertained by Cool Blue – a vocal-led band specialising in blues, jazz and swing, much influenced by the Great American Songbook. Tickets for this special event will be sold in advance only. More information to follow. Finally, keep an eye out for

the chance to have a laugh, a boogie and a singalong to the Ukes of Southwold. Date to be confirmed. Whatever your age there is

something for everyone going on at the Pit Stop this year, and, for the first time in the Pit Stop’s history, you will be able to pay on plastic. Yes, the 21st century has at last arrived on Southwold Common. Go mad! Push the boat out! Have two ice creams!

went onto the pitch to be the flag wavers before kick-off and welcomed the players as they ran onto the pitch. The students then watched the game in the stands. The match was significant

– it was the final round of the groups stages, deciding which team would come out on top and have a favourable home draw in the knockout stages. It was a tough fought game with final score of 38-19 to Saracens. Layla, a Year 7 student said

“I found the trip very exciting, even though it was freezing.

Waving the flag for Saracens was really fun. We had to practice doing it before the game, with rolling the flag up and to hold the straps. The game was very eventful, everyone was roaring with excitement. The Glasgow Warriors played great, the Saracens won with flying colours.” The trip was part of an effort

at Beccles Free School to promote participation in a wide range of sports including rugby. Providing these excellent opportunities give students positive experiences in being involved in sporting activities. David Lees, Head teacher

said, “our students had a fantastic time at the European Champions Cup and thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to be flag wavers at Allianz Park in London.”
