ISLE OF WIGHT

Due to the popularity of this holiday I feel it is only fair to offer places to the regular travellers first. The deadline for booking is 1 September 2022, after this date any spare places will be offered to others who have enquired.

Derbyshire u3a Walking Baton Relay

The Derbyshire u3a Network has organised a Walking Baton Relay to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the u3a.

A baton will be carried around Derbyshire taking in all the Derbyshire u3as, beginning in Derby on Wednesday 7th September and finishing in Derby on Friday 23rd September.

New Mills and District u3a will carry the baton to Hope u3a on Wednesday 14th September, having received the baton from Buxton u3a the day before.

The walk will be 10 miles from New Mills to Edale, via the Sett Valley Trail, Hayfield, Edale Cross and Jacob's Ladder. It will be led by the leader, Jan Smith, and members of the Longer and Medium Walking Groups.

Other members of our u3a are invited to join either all or part of this walk. Please contact the Groups Coordinator (groupscoordinator@newmillsu3a.org.uk) if you are interested in taking part.

It seems a very long time until our August holiday next year so we have sneaked a short Cambridge break in.

It all depends upon numbers.

The hotel booking is held until 31 August so I will be taking names of those interested at the August meeting.
