LAUNCESTON TRAVEL DOWN UNDER!!

VISIT TO MANDURAH U3A
IN WESTERN AUSTRALIA
Visit to Western Australia
My wife and I both retired in June 2012. We looked after our daughter and son in law’s three grandchildren for two and a half days a week, until the family moved to Wannanup, Western Australia in October 2015. We usually visit them each year, so before arriving for our five-week holiday this time I arranged to make a visit to Mandurah U3A.
After liaising with Christine Norman, the President of Mandurah U3A we agreed to meet on 11th April when I was invited to give a presentation about Launceston U3A to a number of their attending members, including some UK expats shown in the photograph below.
