WINGS, WHEELS & WATER
We meet at Tesco Community Room on the first Monday of the month at 10.30am.
Please note that the next meeting of Wings, Wheels & Water definitely will be held on Monday 6 January 2020 at Exning Road Club. (Please ignore the error in the programme for January!)
Apologies to anyone affected by the confusion.
For Reports and pictures see our Facebook page.
Our topic for Monday 2nd December was: Jeeps and their successors – from the early vehicles of World War II to the modern ‘Chelsea tractors’ and the SUVs of today.
I am very pleased to announce a change to our published programme for our December meeting.
Stephen Garner has agreed to do a session following on from our recent trip to IWM Duxford.
The session will be entitled: A Review of the WWW Group visit to Duxford: Enlightening Exhibits and Submarine Stories. During the recent WWW group visit to Duxford, Steve took an alternative view, primarily by avoiding aircraft. He will talk about some of the alternative exhibits, with particular attention to some of those in the Air and Sea display, which prompted him to investigate further the life, and eventual fate of HMS Otter.
We now have a feature entitled '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 AND 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.
