Southport Flower Show - August 18-21st
Southport u3a tell us they are creating a show garden for this year's Flower Show. As an exhibitor, Southport u3a have secured a special advance purchase online entry price for all u3as across the UK. Instead of paying the usual ticket price, all u3a members will pay a discounted entry price of £18. (This offer can also be used by spouses/partners accompanying a u3a member). The ticket can be used on any one of the four show days. If there's sufficient interest a coach could be organised to transport our members. If you're interested in being part of the coach party please e-mail wcru3a@hotmail.com by 14th May.
