We now have a feature entitles 'UPDATES' which is an opportunity for anyone to raise any matters that they have seen anywhere, updating information from a previous topic. These UPDATES may be as long or as short as you wish and take any form. the idea is to encourage members of the group to take a more hands-on or participatory part in each event.
Trips & Visits
There will be at least one outing for the group, using the ‘Gredley Provision’, which provides free transport to and from attractions.
Gredley trips are so called because the U3A is provided with a mini-bus belonging to the Gredley Charitable Trust. There is no charge to U3A members taking part.
WWW has a Gredley trip to IWM Duxford on 5 November.
The bus will leave George Lambton Field at 9.45. You can park in that car park, and we will leave Duxford at 3.30pm. Admission is £13.60 for group members and there are facilities for refreshments and meals. If you’ve never been it’s a must, dealing with all aspects of warfare and militaria, not just aeroplanes!
As a one-time guide, I will give the group a short introductory talk before we split up to do our own thing. You might like to google IWM Duxford and look at the map. It is a very big place and you wouldn’t expect to see it all in 6 hours or so.
At present we have 4 spare spaces and I am therefore inviting members of History, Camera and Model Making to join us.
