May we just pass on our thanks to all of the group who were booked on the visit to Fountains Abbey for your understanding over the postponement. A special thank you to those of you who allowed us to retain your coach payments. This will save us a great deal of time and work when we eventually get up to Yorkshire and has also allowed us to pay the bus company (something that they really appreciated as they are only a small family- based company and are understandably in need of some cash flow).
It is very unlikely that we will be able to go on our April visit to Nostell Priory, but for those who have paid for this visit we have not cashed the cheques but will retain them safely.
If anyone was in doubt about the visit to Fountains being postponed, you will now be aware that – with the health situation reaching a critical point – U3A activities had to be suspended at short notice.
For those of you who are regular National Trust visitors, please check their website because, as you may already be aware, this closure has now been extended to all their grounds.
We will give you regular updates each month.
Barrie and Sue Saunders.
