Great Glen U3A 2016

Great Glen U3A


Arrangements for Future Trips

Pat Tate, our former Trips organiser has been to a meeting with U3A outings organisers from the two Market Harborough U3As. We have agreed that after a specified cut-off date, spare places on any of our trips should be offered to Market Harborough members.  Pick up places will be Great Glen and Market Harborough. The Market Harborough U3As will offer us places on their trips, in the same way.  Details of any available places will be published in the newsletter, where possible.
