Visits & Trips

u3a-logoLEARNING AND SOCIALISING … are the twin ethics of U3A … and one of the best ways to do both is to participate in your West Wolds Visits programme.  Whilst some groups organise events such as walking weeks, or history outings, the general programme is there for the benefit of one and all, with no restrictions as to membership of any one specific group. And remember – all our trips are operated at cost, and each of our visits is unique to you and your fellow members.

If you go to the Photo Gallery  and you can see a few photos of days out and trips away, from several previous years.  Posts are also available on News tab.

The Programme for 2019 is in place, and is shown below – alterations and additions may be made in the future. Other possibilities are still under consideration.
