Thu Apr 11thOutingBurghley House - Thursday 11th April 2019

This trip is now full. Any payments still due must now be paid to Maureen at Wednesday Coffee Morning by cash or cheque made payable to Uttoxeter U3A. A waiting list has been opened if you are interested in going on this trip.

A trip has been arranged to visit the magnificent Burghley House near Stamford Lincolnshire. This is one of the largest and grandest houses of the first Elizabethan Age. Built between 1555 and 1587 by William Cecil, Lord High Treasurer to Queen Elizabeth I. The main part of the House has 35 major rooms on the ground and first floors, and there are more than 80 lesser rooms and numerous halls, corridors, bathrooms and service areas. There is a huge collection of fine art including furniture, paintings, Japanese and Chinese Works of Art and ceramics to name just a little of what you can see.

Weather permitting there are gardens and fine walks around the historic parkland laid out by Capability Brown and still occupied by a herd of fallow deer. Your visit also includes access to the Garden of Surprises, the Sculpture Garden and entry to any exhibition that may be current at the time of our visit.

The cost, which includes £13 entry will be £25.
The coach will leave Tesco at 8.30 am prompt on the date above and will return by approximately 6.00 pm.

Early booking is recommended as these trips have been very successful. We will require full payment by the 13th March 2019. Cheques must be made payable to Uttoxeter U3A.

Wilfred House, Uttoxeter at 10.00 a.m.

Please accept this as formal notice of our AGM to which you are most welcome to attend. I would like to take this opportunity to remind members that we must achieve attendance of at least 10% of our total membership to make the meeting quorate. Last year we scraped past this post, but only just. It is a legal requirement for the continuation of Uttoxeter U3A to achieve this quorum and conduct a successful AGM every year, so please put this important date in your diaries and plan the time to come along. Please note the change of Venue.

Agenda, Annual Accounts and Nomination Forms to apply for posts on the committee will follow nearer the time.
