BOOKINGS FOR OUTINGS – Clarification of Procedure

  • Unless otherwise stated, all bookings must be accompanied by a bookings form and a cheque made payable to Knutsford U3A. Please write the name of the performance or outing on the back of the cheque.
  • We will contact you only if your booking has not been successful. If you want confirmation that you have the places you want, please enclose a stamped addressed envelope.  Usually your cheque will not be paid in until two weeks before the event.
  • If an outing if fully booked when we receive your cheque you will be informed and placed on the waiting list.
  • Priority will be given to U3A members.  If you would like to bring someone who is not a member please put a note on the booking form to this effect and we will inform you if a place becomes available.
  • We hope to take bookings for the current outing at our general meetings but, as our outings are proving very popular we cannot guarantee the availability at the time of the meeting.  In other words please book early to be sure of a place!

The outings subcommittee hope you like the outings we plan.  Please contact Lynda Harris on 01565 621058,  or email info@knutsfordu3a.co.uk  if you have any ideas or suggestions for future outings.

DATES FOR YOUR DIARY

Coalbrookdale on Tuesday 9th June has been cancelled and will be re-arranged when the committee re-convenes.

RHS Worsley Bridgewater Garden cancelled our booking for September this year but it has now been re-arranged for Monday afternoon on 5th July 2021.

We have decided to cancel our booking with Shibden Hall and the Piece Hall in Halifax on 12 August 2020. With all the restrictions that will be in place we do not consider it to be a viable proposition, even if they do re-open. We hope to re-book it when the situation is more settled.

Three other outings are still in place:  

Roberts Bakery on Wednesday 30th September and Wednesday 25th November

Chatsworth on Monday 7th December for Christmas decorations.

Tickets for these events will be available later in the year.
