On a relatively warm and sunny spring day in the Cheviot Centre, Gill Lindsay relived her trip to Antarctica with Wooler U3A members.

Antarctica is nearly twice the size of Australia and is the coldest, driest and windiest continent with 98 per cent of the land covered in ice.

Gill travelled via Buenos Aires in Argentina, Tierra del Fuego and the Falkland Islands and showed wonderful photos of penguins, icebergs, birds and her expedition colleagues.

The next general meeting on Monday, May 8, in the Cheviot Centre, Wooler, will feature a talk by Hamish Reid on Sir Walter Scott and Abbotsford. For further information, visit www.u3asites.org.uk/wooler
