U3A Heritage Group
This group explores the diversity of our industries,
technologies, our historic past, lifestyles and culture.
The activities are open to all Bradgate U3A members
The aim is to visit places of interest while keeping costs to a minimum
This is achieved by using members cars as transport.
The group needs the support of car owners
so that the job does not fall on the shoulders of the same 4 or 5 people.
Group contacts Victor Berridge, Dave Bradshaw, Sandy Dickie.
