Your Travel Team

Back row l to r: Richard, Chris and Graham. Front row l to r: Cazzie, Ginny and Liz

Our aim is to provide our membership with a wide choice of value for money trips to suit all pockets, bearing in mind the rising cost of transport and food. As well as being friendly and fun, we endeavour to make our trips educational/cultural in line with the U3A ethos of continued learning and sharing experiences.

Phil, our Webmaster, is working hard to produce us a new Travel Booking System, where you will be able to book on trips without using a password, select your pick up point and make your lunch choices. We're expecting the system to be up and running by April.

These are the trips we're researching for you for this year.

11 April - day trip to the Lladró factory in Valencia with a visit to Port Saplaya and lunch in the afternoon.
