Excursions & Outings – More Information

Our objectives

  • To offer members the opportunity to visit places of interest within two hours of Chalfont St Peter

  • Where possible a private guide is booked for each venue and frequently we are able to offer lunch and/or tea within the price

  • To broaden our knowledge and learning

  • To enjoy great days out and socialise with fellow members

How bookings are handled

All members on the Excursions List are emailed with full information about each trip, along with a booking form.

Booking Procedure

Our Administrator, Val Smith, will take your initial booking and your place will then be confirmed by email.

Excursions have proved to be very popular with our members and we do recommend that if you wish to join a trip then you act promptly on receipt of the email to avoid disappointment.

Payment For Excursion or Outing

All excursions we organise have to be self-funding. Therefore payment for the booking is up-front in full. This ensures that we do not incur any losses.

Reserve List

Once a trip is 'full' we place members names on to the Reserve List. If a member who has paid for their booking then withdraws their booking, we will automatically contact members on the reserve list to take up their place.

Refunds Policy for Cancelled Bookings

As you will appreciate we cannot guarantee that we can make refund/s unless we are able to find a replacement.

Membership Cards

All members are required to bring their Chalfonts U3A membership card when on a trip.
