Local History Group 2
We have just returned from a trip to Bletchley Park on May 3rd. Both Local History Groups went - 46 in total.
Many people have already said they would like a return visit, as there is so much to see and absorb.
So, a possibility of another U3A outing - or a number of independent car journeys
