Booking Conditions

Places should be reserved and paid in full at the next meeting after a Theatre visit or social outing has been announced.  A non-refundable deposit will be taken at the time of booking.  Putting your name down will be taken as a FIRM COMMITMENT to that visit/outing.  Please keep this in mind.
 
If a member is unable to go there will be no return of monies paid.  A replacement should be found by the member if there is no reserve list.  Although U3A members will have first choice, a replacement who is not a member is otherwise acceptable.
 
In the unfortunate event the trip/outing is cancelled due to circumstances outside our control and we are unable to obtain an exchange or refund then the cost will have to be borne by each member.

A blue badge guided tour for some U3A members.

October 4th 2017 - Ampleforth Abbey

     

On Wednesday 4 October 2017 45 members visited Ampleforth Abbey in North Yorkshire. They were given a guided tour of the orchards Cider Mill and Press were we tasted some of the cider. The three course meal was excellent and came with more tastings which convinced the members to spend their pensions buying cider (at reduced rates). Brother Benedict then gave us a guided tour of the Abbey.

July 18th 2017 - Jodrell Bank

On 18 July 2017 members visited Jodrell Bank and were treated to a tour of the very impressive Arboretum and were educated in the development and history of the Lovell Telescope which has been in place since 1957.
