Trips and Outings

These events are not being organised by Petersfield U3A but our members are being allowed to join in with trips organised by Maureen Willett.

Maureen has been a member of Petersfield U3A for over 10 years and has organised numerous trips and holidays for Petersfield U3A members over this period. She has at the same time also organised similar events for the retired members of the Unison London Borough of Merton social club, of which she is also a member.

These trips are focused on areas of general interest and are available to all members. They are completely separate from more specialist trips organised by specific interest groups, such as Arts and Heritage, Gardening or The South Bank Group. The arrangement with Maureen will ultimately have certain trips biased towards Petersfield U3A and others biased towards Merton Social Club, with members of both able to join any trip.

To participate in any of the trips please email Maureen at to check availability. Cheques are payable to Unison Merton unless stated otherwise, addressed to the Treasurer, posted to Brenda and Barbara Hope, 147, Garendon Road, Morden, Surrey, SM4 6NA. Give your Name/s address, number of people attending, contact details, and your meeting point. All Coach trips pickups points are Croydon, Mitcham, Morden and Petersfield. Please arrive 10mins before departure time. During the year there may be additional trips these will be on the website or News and Views Xtra.

The 2019 programme of trips and holidays comes with the strong backing of the Chairman who is very keen on increasing the involvement of all PU3A members as well as providing more opportunities for general social interaction and friendships.
