Availability: Any member can attend
We arrange occasional visits to places on behalf of all Hayling Island U3A members. You do not have to join the Visits 'group' to go on one of our trips.
Our 2018 programme has been agreed and details are:
- Globe Theatre Tour with the opportunity to visit Borough Market, The Millenium Bridge and Tate Modern. April 25th. Cost £30.
- Longleat Safari Park and House. June13th
- A special visit to Swanage which will finish with a six thirty dinner at the Laguna Hotel, Bournemouth before returning to Hayling Island. You can also take a trip to Corfe Castle on the Swanage Railway. The fare is not included in the cost of the visit. August 17th
- Bournemouth Christmas Market. December 12th
Costs for these visits will be shown when they are finalised. We hope this advance notice of next year's visits will enable you to plan your diaries to avoid disappointment.
Bookings for visits are limited. We take bookings on a first-come first-served basis, but (because of issues we've had in the past) we do not recognise a booking until we've received your payment. That means we cannot start taking bookings until we have calculated the cost to members. Cheques are not cashed until nearer the date of the visit when various payments have to be made.
Please note that no refunds will be made unless the ticket can be reallocated from the waiting list or the person who cannot go can find someone to use their ticket.
Visits are available for 49 members although if we have sufficient notice and the visit is over-subscribed we can book a 59 seater coach. If visits are under subscribed we reserve the right tooter places to members of other local U3A Groups in order to avoid making a loss. Naturally Hayling U3A members have priority.
The easiest way for you to book a place on a visit is to go to the visit page (click one of the above links or the visit name shown under 'Forthcoming events') and follow the instructions shown under 'Your bookings' at the end of the description. If 'Your bookings' doesn't appear it means we are still calculating the cost of the trip so can't yet take bookings.
You can also book visits at the monthly meetings. We'll have a table set up to take bookings for visits.
You can now make payment by bank transfer on the internet. You need to login to the members' area to see the bank account details. Click here to do that now.
