A Visit to Kent2006 Heritage Group trip
To Kent we did a go
Four day visit to dockyard and ship
Going thro’ the Submarine so low
We all got through the hatch doors
This was just one of the brilliant tours
Day 2 took us to Canterbury Cathedral
Awesome in height, Gothic arches and spires
The murder of Beckett so bloody and brutal
A tomb of the Black Knight behind the Quires
Leeds Castle was our destination on day 3
Rain didn’t dampen the spirits of the U3A
As they navigated the Maze, Gardens and Aviary
Within the Castle there was much to see,
a bonus was the “Autumn Gold” flower display
Thank you to Margaret and Grace for organising the trip to Kent.
Where are we going for the next event??
There will not be a meal out in either November or December organised by this group.
We enjoyed our last meal for 2006 at The Little Mill Inn, Rowarth and are busy planning 2007.
Details of the JANUARY 2007 meal will be available at the December & January meetings.
On the 21st September we embarked on a Bowling Bonanza to ‘Cheshire View’ at Christleton near
I can say without hesitation it was a “Purrfec” Day thanks to the efficient organisation, this together
with the lovely sunny weather resulted in the 30 strong group being in a fun mood all day.
The Cheshire View gave us excellent service with morning coffee, a buffet lunch, an afternoon ‘cuppa’
and in the evening a tasty well-cooked dinner.
In the Bowling competition Sheila Burke and Margaret Dodd were joint ‘Top Ladies’ and Dave Smith
was ‘Top Man’ and they and others received prizes.
After Dinner Margaret Meekley gave Ken & Edna a well deserved vote of thanks and then we were homeward bound, still lively enough to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to Sheila and Brian who I am sure will
remember their 2006 birthdays as a very delightful day.
