U3A Holidays

History and Heritage of Malta
14 May 2020

Haddenham U3A organises a number of holidays for its members each year. These can range from short breaks to walking holidays to overseas holidays.

Members who may be interested in any of these holidays are advise to let the organiser know at the earliest opportunity. Often the full details, including costs, are not immediately available, but notification of interest will help the organiser to make suitable arrangements.

In some cases, the holidays may be opened to members of other U3As or friends if places are available.


Costs of each holiday will be notified to all interested parties as they become available.  Payment arrangements will also be notified by the holiday organiser (either via the U3A or direct to travel companies)

Where payments are requested to be paid via the U3A, cheques should be payable to Haddenham U3A and have the name of the event written on the back.  You may also pay by internet or telephone banking to the credit of Haddenham U3A, sort code 40-52-40, account no. 00021010, with the holiday name as the reference. As soon as you have used one of these methods, please email or ring the Treasurer (treasurer@haddenhamu3a.co.uk or 01844 292393) and the event organiser to confirm that the payment has been sent.

Group Notice

Cycling Holiday in Prague and Beyond – 6 to 13 July 2019 (Open to all U3A Members)

The cycling group have arranged a river boat with bike hire from Prague next year, and as this is a larger boat than usual (Florentina) we are able to open this tour to all members of the U3A.

The cycling should be relatively easy along the rivers with distances as set out below. It is NOT limited to cyclists and one doesn’t have to cycle at all, just stay on the boat

Twin cabins are £805 pp on the main deck and £1,010 pp on the upper deck with French balcony

There are no single cabins left, but some doubles remain.

Transport is NOT included but we will probably fly to Prague and arrange flights at a later date.
