Hi everybody,

This year's Summer Stroll (seats still available !), taking place on August 5th in the village of Haworth, inevitably evokes memories of the 1970 film that's forever linked to that location - The Railway Children.

As such, we thought we'd gauge the level of interest in relation to a showing of the film, almost certainly at the Well (in one of their smaller rooms).

We know we can't please everybody with choice of date, but we're plumping for Thursday, 18th July at 7 pm. Likely cost would be £1.50 per head in order to cover costs of room hire.
Nothing's either in tablets of stone or booked yet, so if you would like to let our illustrious Moderates coordinator (David Richardson) know if you are even mildly interested it would give us some notion of whether it's worth setting it up.


Naturally, the showing wouldn't be restricted to walking group members only.

Assuming that it's anything like viable we will firm things up nearer the day.

David's email address is if you would care to contact him.

Best regards.

Tom, on behalf of David and Jean.


19/6/19 - further update re above from Tom:-


Hi everybody,


Really sorry to mess anybody about, but logistics have meant that we've had to change the date of the above to Monday, 22nd July at 6.30 pm.
It's still £1.50 per person to go towards the cost of hiring the room.
As some who may already have indicated their interest may now not be able to make it would they please let David know ? If you can still go, then likewise, as there is a maximum safe capacity applying to the room we are hiring and we don't wish to turn people away.
That said, there's still a good few seats left, so anybody at all (walking groups or not) who wishes to attend are urged to let David know.
David's contact details are: or 01427 891500 if you prefer to make contact by 'phone.

Apologies once again for anybody who may be inconvenienced.



PS. There's still seats left for our Summer Stroll to Haworth on August 5th,(cost £11 each) after allowing for those members who have indicated their intention to go but have not yet paid.
We'll be taking bookings at next week's GM on Thursday. Preferable mode of payment is via cheque, made out to Retford U3A please.

Best regards.

David, Geoff, Jean and Tom
