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


In June 2019 a trip to Northern Croatia, again with Riviera Travel is planned with nine having paid their deposits.   This has a Stansted 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.


We are also planning a trip, by coach, to Liverpool, 23rd to 27th September 2019.  This will be with Tailored Travel and has a full programme of visits to many places of interest.  21 Group members have indicated a wish to be included on this trip.  There is currently room for more.  Tailored Travel will be issuing the formal booking forms setting out full details shortly.  It is acknowledged that this was a long way off for members to commit but that is the nature of such group travel plans.  Andy Thompson is the Committee member leading on this one.


Following the suggestion made at one of pour Groupís meetings, we will be holding a summer get-together.  This will be in the form of a DIY picnic in Hylands Park on Thursday 19th July.  A flyer has been circulated.  Group members are welcome to bring along non-group members from Chelmsford U3A.  Clare Lyne is the Committee member leading on this event.


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


Please contact me for any information on the Groupís activities
