The Contact for the Group is Carole Rowlinson
The Awaydays Group organises trips and outings to places which it considers to be of interest to its members.
The aim is to arrange something for most months of the year. Full details are e-mailed to members in good time with a booking form which must be returned to our group treasurer with a cheque for the requisite amount. Members not contactable by e-mail will hopefully be able to book at the U3A main meetings, or better with the help of a friend who is able to receive email communications, as trips are open for booking by post on the 1st of the month and the trips may well be booked up by the time of the monthly meeting.
In order to receive notification of our events as they are arranged you must enrol as a member of the Awaydays Group. This can be done at the U3a main meeting each month.
To give a flavour of some of our recent trips, I have listed some of our most recent trips. This September we started our 2019-2020 season with a trip to Buxton. We also had a very good lunch with entertainment at the Rivington Hall Barn. We had a tour of the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester and most recently, a visit to Grassington Festival in the Yorkshire Dales.
We also organise a holiday abroad each September. In recent years we have been to Croatia, Northern Spain and to Tuscany. This year the holiday was to the Austrian Tyrol.
If you intend to book for any trip make sure that you send the booking form to arrive before the 1st of the following month (or as advised at the time) and remember to write the name of the trip on the outside of the envelope.
There are photographs from some of our visits are included on this page; others may be accessed via the links, also on this page.
The Committee always welcomes ideas from members so if you have any places you would like to visit please pass your ideas on to a member of the Committee as listed in your welcome email or letter.
