UNIVERSITY OF THE THIRD AGE
To run a range of outings and activities for people who want to do something on a Sunday
To vary the outings so that they appeal to people of all ages (we currently have membership from age 60 to 91)
Car sharing for all of our events means that people who don’t drive can still come out (making a contribution to petrol)
So far the group has been to Pinewood Cinema, for pub lunches, visited garden centres, open gardens, NT properties, the bluebells in the woods followed by lunch at Denham Garden Village and a market with a walk around Black Park. Some of us even had a walk across the fields from Chalfont St Peter to Chalfont St Giles on Easter Sunday. Our outings always include somewhere for refreshments – most important! – and often an opportunity for Sunday lunch for those of us that are on our own and don’t want to cook for ourselves in the evening. Those that don’t want a full lunch can buy a snack at the places we visit.
Ideas are welcome from within our membership.
