Wed Nov 13th Visits to DMS Whittington in 2019

Hurry only one ticket left!

I have arranged for Lichfield U3A to visit DMS Whittington Where we are restricted initially to 15 in each group.

The evenings start at 7pm and finish at 9.30pm, and consist of an opening address from the Commanding Officer and then a tour of some of the key areas on site, followed by tea and coffee with the opportunity to view the Whittington Tapestry. Groups will meet at DMS Whittington.

If you are interested in joining one of these visits it will be first come, first served but I will keep a waiting list for each visit in case we get more places.

Please make sure you tell me what date you require and how many places, and, of course, your name and contact number!
