The Royal Forest of Dean - Monday, 20th to Friday, 24th April 2020

With a great deal of help from Andy Meaton, I’m planning a few days away for U3A members in the beautiful Royal Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire in April next year. The proposed dates are from Monday, 20th to Friday, 24th April 2020 - these dates avoid Easter and half-term school holidays. However, there is no reason why you shouldn’t choose more or fewer days, as you wish.
