Travel Group

Please see our Travel Group Information Sheet.

Lynn Maloney, 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 more major 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.
