The next planned social event will be the Christmas lunch which this year will be at Channels on Wednesday 5th December.  Details have been sent to Group members.


The Groupís next planned holiday is to Stockholm and Copenhagen in the autumn with Riviera Travel.  Ten Group members are now expecting to participate in this trip. A pre-holiday lunch has been arranged.


In June 2019 a trip to Northern Croatia, again with Riviera Travel, is planned with ten having paid their deposits.   This has a Stanstead departure and is for the period 16th to 23rd June.  Any further people interested can contact me to find out more, though all details are available on the Riviera Travel website.  I am the Committee member leading on this.


The trip after that, by coach, is to Liverpool, 23rd to 27th September 2019.  This is with Tailored Travel and has a full programme of visits to many places of interest.  Twenty or so members have committed to this trip, including a couple from a neighbouring U3A.  There is room for more.  Tailored Travel have issued formal booking forms and if anyone would like one, Travel Group Members or otherwise, please let us know.  Andy Thompson is the Committee member leading on this one.


We are currently giving thought to a walking holiday of some sort and will bring forward ideas or proposals in due course.


We have a new email address for Travel Group business so please make a note of this,


The date of the next Group meeting has yet to be fixed.


Please contact me for any information on the Groupís activities
