National Trust Visits
Proposed New U3A Group : National Trust visits Convener : Rosemary Stewart
2020 Filers Coach Excursions to National Trust houses & gardens:
We have made block reservations for seven Filers coach day outings to National Trust houses & gardens (includes 2 non NT) through 2020.
Members who expressed interest last year have been sent details on booking.
Any more members who might be interested in some or all of the outings are asked to contact Rosemary for full information.
NB In order to qualify for group discount, it is vital that members make it clear to Filers at the time of making their booking that they are part of the ‘U3A Rosemary Stewart group’. Hopefully we will benefit to the extent of a cream tea or two!
All venues offer lunches & teas.
