Garden Visits

Welcome to the Garden Visits page. My name is Pat Devereux and I am the Group Leader.

We meet on the 3rd Tuesday of each month, apart from December but this can occasionally change. Our visits are a mixture of whole-day coach trips and morning visits to local gardens, the latter being usually no more than 20 miles away. The coach trips are open to ALL U3A members. For the local trips you pay on the day and also have to find your own way there.

For further information or to book any of the coach trips, please contact me, details on the Interest Groups Insert. You can also speak to me at the monthly meeting. I will be sitting at the trips table at the right-hand side at the front of the church.

Please find below the list of trips for this year:
