We got home last evening at 6.30pm, weary but happy. We had a great time and all went extremely well, particularly the weather in Glasgow. The party was great, a lovely mix and people were so kind and supportive.
A big thank you to Alan Smith for organising the trip to Glasgow.
The visit to the Kelpies on a beautiful day was a really good experience with information given by our guide Hannah, we also saw what was inside a horses (Kelpies) head quite a surprise. Falkirk Wheel was our next stop a marvel of modern engineering.
Our Hilton Hotel stay in pleasant surroundings and comfortable with easy access to Glasgow which is a must come again city. Visiting Edinburgh on Sunday we experienced good old Scottish weather but still enjoyed our time spent here.
Homeward bound arriving in Seaham to more rain.
Never mind we all had a jolly good time.
Cheers Alan, Lang may your lum reek.

Jan Leach, Chairperson for Seaham & District U3A asked me to contact you with regards to our Litter Picking Group. I understand from Sarah Gurney that some of your members might like to join in with us when we go out litter picking around Seaham. Sarah joined us on our litter pick last month and she mentioned that other people might be interested in joining us. We usually go out on the Last Monday of the month, we meet at 9.15am, we litter pick until 11.30am.
I think this will be an ideal opportunity to network with our neighbourly U3A group. Our next litter pick will be Monday 29th July, we will be meeting at the Dene House Road entrance to Rock House Dene.
If you could let me know if any of your members are interested in joining us that would be great as I have to let Seaham Council know how many numbers, we are expecting so they can supply us with plenty of equipment.
