Travel Group

Please see our Travel Group Information Sheet.

Chrissie White, Audrey Eyre, Gill Errington, and Helen Dew are all members of the Travel Group. We organise day trips for our group, and also short breaks away which are available to all members of our Barnsley & District U3A. We arrange our trips through the services of Yorkshire Rose Holidays ensuring that all aspects of our travel and accomodation are professionally planned.

We took over at the beginning of 2016 and have organised day trips to Lincoln and Liverpool, and also a two night stay at Longleat to see the Chinese Lanterns in the Festival of Lights.

Trips in 2018

We organised an overnight trip to Scarborough, including a trip on the Pickering to Whitby railway.

A boat trip and carvery on the River Trent was so successful that we are running it again in 2019

We organised a trip to London to include Classical Spectacular which was very enjoyable

Castle Howard at Christmas was our last enjoyable trip of the year.
