We enjoyed a lovely long weekend away in January 2018 to The Bay Burlington Hotel in Eastbourne.
In September we enjoyed a four night break on Hayling Island
In December we enjoyed a five course dinner and had a good time overnight on the Magellan Cruise Ship.


In March we had a lovely break when we returned to The Bay Burlington Hotel, Eastbourne.
In September a holiday at Warners, Norton Grange, Isle of Wight was much enjoyed.



Spring Holiday Friday 27 March - Monday 30th March 2020. Cost £149

For a change from going to Eastbourne for our Spring break, we are going to the Bay Carlton Hotel on the Yarmouth seafront. This holiday is a Shearing break so will include coach which will stay with us so you will have an optional day trip plus four free drinks on the Saturday.

A deposit of £65 should have been paid at the U3A meeting on Tuesday, 10 September.

Members are reminded that the final payment of £84 per person, cheques payable to Waltham Abbey Travel, should have been paid at the end of the December monthly U3A meeting. If you were unable to pay at the meeting please get in contact with me as soon as possible.


NEW HOLIDAY - Four day break at Shearings Bay Savoy Hotel, Bournemouth
Monday 21 September - Friday 25 September. Cost £260

I am pleased to say I have arranged a visit to Bournemouth, on the south coast, with Waltham Abbey Travel and Shearings holidays. The hotel comes highly recommended by members who have just returned. The four day holiday includes half board, excursions and some evening entertainment. Unfortunately as this is a summer break, no free drinks are included.
A deposit of £65 per person should have been paid at the end of the December monthly U3A meeting. As there are only a limited number of single rooms, if any friends are willing to share a twin room, this would be helpful. The final payment will be required at the beginning of July. If you were unable to get to the December U3A meeting please get in touch by text.


HOLIDAY GROUP : Members who were due to go on the U3A holidays to Yarmouth in March and Bournemouth in September will receive a refund of all monies paid. As you are aware Shearing Holiday Company went into administration so any refund will have to come from the administrators. Unfortunately it is not known how long this will take as 64000 people have applied for refunds which will be given out in order of holiday so hopefully the March oliday to Yarmouth will be one of the first to be refunded.
Please accept my sincere apologies for the delay in receiving the refund but I can ensure you that Gay at Waltham Abbey Travel is doing all she can to get the monies returned.
