Saltaire, which is 4 miles from Bradford, takes its name from Sir Titus Salt. The village is still lived in today and has many interesting features. I won't give the information about the village as I will only be giving you what I found out on the internet, so please look at saltaire.vic@bradford.gov.uk and/or the Bradford tourist information site.

We filled the 29 seater coach at the last meeting so we have now organised a 49 seater coach. The cost will now be £11.50 (coach and tip). Members who have already paid for this outing will receive a £2 refund.

George Sheeran, who is one of our members, has kindly volunteered to take a group round Saltaire and introduce you to its history. The tour will be free. Please sign up at the next meeting if you wish go on the tour.

Leaving the bus station - 8.30
