The Committee wish to thank most sincerely Dave Sweatman for chairing the sub-committee to arrange Trips out and about for our U3A. Also we must thank Pam Leaning for assisting Dave with this. They meet regularly to put ideas together for future outings.
It is up to us, the Members, to support them, please.
OUR NEXT TRIP IS ON TUESDAY JUNE 11th to Damhouse, Astley, Manchester.
Damhouse is a grade 2 Historic house in Astley with extensive grounds and an interesting past. We will have a guide to tell us the story and a light lunch is included in the price.
Later we will return via Bents Garden Centre near Leigh where we can browse for a couple of hours before returning to Parbold at around 4.30pm.
