Day trip to HEVER CASTLE
I am pleased to say I have arranged a trip to Hever Castle, which is steeped in history and was the home of Anne Boleyn, King Henry VII's second wife. There are beautiful gardens as well, so well worth a visit. I am waiting to hear if RHS members can get free entry; if so the cost for them will be £15. If interested please contact me as soon as possible and forward cheque, payable to Waltham Abbey U3A, to my home address once your place has been confirmed.

Terry - 07944 239 235
It has been decided that at present due to reduced U3A membership it could be difficult to fill a 52 seater coach so it has been agreed with Waltham Abbey Travel that 20 places will be blocked off for U3A members so if interest in any of these trips please go to Waltham Abbey travel and make it clear you are a U3A member.
