Please Note You should make a risk assessment for yourself as some venues are uneven and with steps etc. For more details of venues Please email Lionel at here.
It is recommended that you take a lateral flow test before attending U3A trips.
The wearing of face coverings has now ceased to be a legal requirement. The wearing of a face covering is therefore completely discretionary. However, given that the virus has not gone away, you may consider it prudent, as an act of charity and in the interests of the Common Good, to still wear a face covering as invariably you will come into contact with some people you do not normally meet.
Please bring a face covering with you, as some of the venues we visit still require you to wear face coverings inside

So I can book suitable size coaches for the number of members wishing to visit each venue, could you please contact me ASAP to let me know which trips you would be interested in; details in the recent Group News email.

Once I have an idea of how many members are interested in each trip, I can arrange the coaches and then work out the prices & publish them in the Spring Digest.
Thank you, Lionel
