GARDEN VISITS INFORMATION
Garden Visits are organised for PPU3A members as a private group arrangement for the 3rd Tuesday monthly, from April through to September, to arrive at the garden (usually) for 11am.
Places must be booked in advance by completing a Booking Form and returning to Ann or Jack by the closing date, with cheque made payable to Preston Park U3A No. 2 account.
Places are allocated on a first come, first served basis and are secured only on receipt of a booking form and cheque. Places cannot be held without payment.
If you cancel your booking after the closing date and payment has been made to the garden owners, we are unable to provide a refund.
Other than one coach trip per year, we travel by car share arrangement. There is often confusion on protocol with regards to reimbursing or thanking the driver. To avoid this, we recommend you follow PPU3A Guidelines given in brief below. (Full details are available on the PPU3A website.)
PRESTON PARK U3A CAR SHARE GUIDELINES
The Third Age Trust has stated that U3A members can offer lifts to other members and accept money towards fuel costs without compromising their vehicle insurance policy.
The recommended current contribution is 10 pence per mile per member based on a 4 or 5 seat vehicle.
An approximate mileage guide will be included on the garden booking form, which you should double for the return trip.
Pickups & drop off points must be within the Preston Park area. If you live outside of the area, you will be required to make your own way to one of the regular meeting points.
