This group arranges visits to Gardens - there is no need to be a member of the Garden Group to attend our trips or to commit to any specific number of visits. Once at the location you are free to do exactly what you want - we wander around in small groups or alone!
Transport costs are estimated - the more people that come the cheaper it will be. We normally give a rebate on the day if numbers allow a reduction in the charge. Costs are published on the website event and in the Newsletter once we have an idea if numbers. Payment for the transport is required before the trip - please make cheques payable to 'Ashbourne and District U3A' and bring to the Monthly Meeting or send to Patti Green, Valley View, Cross O Th Hands, Turnditch Belper DE56 2LT or to Sue Dandy 43 Peak View Drive Ashbourne DE6 1BR
Booking lists are available at the Monthly Meeting or book directly with Patti Green 07720 812278 firstname.lastname@example.org or Sue Dandy 01335 345157
Cancellation - in the unlikely event that you need to cancel PLEASE ring one of the Organisers to let us know before the day. (We have had several occasions where friends have advised us on the day which is too late to downgrade the coach if we need to do so.) If you can get someone to take your place that is great - if not we will try and repay transport fees in part or in full - but cannot do so if we have not covered our costs.
