Outings

Group details

There are usually 10 Outings per year. We visit a wide range of interesting, unusual, famous and lesser known locations around London and the Home Counties. Many are within London and are accessible by public transport, but for those visits further afield, we travel by coach.

Details of current and future Outings are publicised in the Flyers, which can be seen below, and on the Display Board when booking in Room 3.

Bookings

Bookings are taken prior to the Monthly Meetings, on the 3rd Thursday of each month, in Room 3 (ground floor), Hartley Hall, Flower Lane, Mill Hill NW7 2JA.

  1. Room 3 opens at 1.00pm and closes at exactly 1.50pm (as we volunteers like to attend the Meetings too!)
  2. Please be aware that you can only book for ONE other member.
  3. Bring a cheque, made out to “The Outings Group”, and your MHU3A Membership Card. We cannot accept cash or cards.
  4. Put your cheque in an envelope on which is written:
    (a) The name of the Outing
    (b) Your name/s
    (c) Your MHU3A Mem No/s.
    (d) Number of tickets requested (max 2 tickets per person)
    (e) Total amount paid
    (f) A contact phone number (for use on the day of the Outing).

Joining Instructions will be sent out approx. ten days before each Outing, with details of the assembly point, guidelines from the venue and suggested public transport etc

How to book by email

Priority goes to those members booking “live” before the Monthly Meetings (unless specified in the Flyer). If you cannot attend, for whatever reason, please contact us after the Monthly Meeting at outingsmhu3a@gmail.com to find out if there are spaces still available.

If there are, you will be told how to make payment to the Outings’ Treasurer. You should normally receive email confirmation of receipt of your booking within a week.

PLEASE NOTE: Some Outings involve more walking, stairs or uneven ground, so please read the flyer to check whether the venue will be suitable for you.

The Outings Team Volunteers

We have eight excellent volunteers, Liz Allden, Antoinette Azzopardi, Liz Driscoll, Jennifer Morris, Martin Norwood, Carol Price, Simeone Salik and Stuart Trogal, who research, select, liaise-with & book the venues and coaches, and take your bookings.
