Buckfastleigh Train Trip

We set off on the coach and went through some rain storms on the way to Buckfastleigh and on arrival had coffee.   The weather had improved and stayed dry for the rest of the visit.  We then went in to the Butterfly and Otter Farm at 11.30 and we all saw the Otters being fed and were given a talk about the various difference types of Otters. Afterwards we boarded the 12.15 steam train for Totnes where several of us walked into town for lunch and returned to the station to see the Rare Breeds farm adjoining the station cafe.  We congregated there for tea before catching the 4.30 train back to Buckastleigh to join the coach for the home journey, arriving at Truro at 6.40.



A group of us are going on a coach trip as a section of an organised Turkey & Tinsel week Monday to Friday 27th November to 1 st December at the Marsham Court Hotel Bournemouth Bed Breakfast and 3 course evening meal,afternoon tea and cakes, with daily trips to Weymouth, Salisbury and Blandford Forum.  There is also evening entertainment.  price £340 no single room supplement.  For more details contact Marion & Mike Tapp 01209 820301 or email m.tapp777@btinternet.com




Coach Trip Dawlish & Powderham Castle  Thursday June 22nd

Coach Trip Dawlish & Powderham Castle  Thursday June 22nd. Guide to Powderham in the centre.


Discounted tickets for 10 or more for any performance at The Hall for Cornwall are available to U3A members. Group Leaders are invited to call Liz Barnes at HfC, on (01872) 321972 for booking seats not later than 6 weeks before a performance and reserve 10 or more tickets, thus getting an 11th ticket free, whilst avoiding any ticket booking charge.

Payments for such group booking of tickets must be made, and paid for by one person, ideally the Group Leader as early as possible and not later than 6 weeks prior to the performance.

Individual payment for group-booked tickets cannot be accepted, since Liz Barnes has to create a 'booking profile for each U3A Group, wishing to avail themselves of this facility. Without such a profile, discounted tickets cannot be supplied; a move U3A have negotiated with HfC in order to gain a central booking facility, together with a generous discount which is most generous and will hopefully be welcome and shared! Why not check the HfC's web-site for programe and ticket options, but ensure bookings are via the Group Leader: https://www.hallforcornwall.org/online/default.asp

For further information, contact Gill Widdison (01872) 242642
