The next holiday is in June 2019, a trip to Northern Croatia, with Riviera Travel. Thirteen members have paid their deposits.   This has a Stansted departure and is for the period 16th to 23rd June.   I am the Committee member leading on this.


In September there is our first holiday for solo travellers to North Cyprus run by Just You. Anne Brereton is taking this forward and seven people have paid their deposits for the trip.  If you are interested please let us know via in the first instance.


The trip after that is by coach, to Liverpool, 23rd to 27th September 2019.  This is with Tailored Travel and has a full programme of visits to many places of interest.  Over 30 members have paid their deposits for this trip, including some from neighbouring U3As.  There is room for more so contact us if you are interested.  Andy Thompson is the Committee member leading on this one.


Several of you have expressed an interest in a Crete holiday in May 2020 run by Preferred Travel.  We be launching this shortly but in the meantime by all means let Anne Brereton know via the above email address if you have yet to let her know you are interested.


Details of the North Cyrus and Crete opportunities have been circulated to Group members, but all branch members are welcome to join us and can see details online or by request from me.


While a date for the next Travel Group meeting, probably towards Easter, has yet to be decided, a date for diaries is the summer social event, the Picnic in the Park, which is on Thursday 4th July 2019.  It is planned that this will again take place at Hylands Park
