The Photo Group Abroad
Liverpool is famous for "The Beatles" and its fine musical heritage, for its many architectural triumphs and for a nautical history stretching back generations.
Following a visit from members of the Photography Group all these three vital components
of the city were intact.....however, reports indicate that several cream teas may
have been demolished, thereby depriving Liverpudlians from some culinary treats!
Sorry for that, Scouser ex-
Our photo field trip this year was to Liverpool on 24 June see below.
Previously, when organising coach trips, we have booked a coach independently, to a destination of our choice. But, this left the group financially vulnerable to the changes in members circumstances etc, and presented many hours of effort to make sure everything was in place.
This time, however, one of the leadership team had a bright idea. She contacted a firm, who organised coach trips (Eddie Brown Tours), well in advance, and they were very receptive to organising a trip to a destination of our choice on a day convenient for the group. We had first chance to purchase tickets and the rest of the coach was filled with other U3A members and the general public. Minimal effort from the leadership team and no financial worries!
For group leaderships, we recommend the method we employed, for organising this visit, which minimised the financial risk and the time spent arranging.
Now we have 12 months worth of photographs, on a multitude of subjects, and we are
presently doing the final organisation for our annual exhibition. This year, we return
to St. Peter's Church in the town centre, a favourite location, used on previous
occasions, but it has been unavailable, due to major refurbishment. This year, the
exhibition runs from Saturday 24th to Friday 30th August. Please stop for a while
and view our years' efforts -
