25th October some members met for coffee and/or lunch at the Elton Walled Garden Centre Tea Rooms. Idea were discussed for 2018. As a group we have been made very welcome at this Centre

27th September ​​​​2017 ​- ​​I hope those who attended the  'Fun Run' on Wednesday really enjoyed themselves.  The reports I have received so far do indicate that it was a great success!

On behalf of you all I would like to thank Roy and Jenny very much for all their preparation and organisation for this event especially as I was unable to attend. 

They even arranged the weather to suit!! 

There are also some photos of this 'Run' and  the 3 Counties Run (May 2017) in the Gallery section of the PU3A web page.

U3A Classic and Kit Car Group Passed Notices

The Three Counties Run 31st May 2017 

From Elton Garden Centre, classic car enthusiasts in 11 vehicles set out for a Run which had been planned and organised by two of our members Graham and Carol.

The sun shone as we wound our way through 28 miles of beautiful English countryside. Following our Route Directions we arrived at the Chequered Flag in Rockingham in time for Lunch…No one lost so far!!

Picking up our Return Journey Route, once again with Odometers set to zero, we were off…..  Still keeping to quiet country lanes through Northamptonshire, Leicestershire & Rutland and even after a short delay while one of the roads reopened after road repairs, we get back for afternoon tea and cake in Elton.

Invited guests also enjoying this event with the U3A Classic Car Group were members of the local Morgan Owners’ Club.

Our thanks once again go to Graham and Carol for all their preparation beforehand making this, our first rally, such a success. 

Saturday 24th June - Nassington Village Open Gardens

The Classic Car Group displayed five cars and a motor bike in front of Prebendal Manor in support of this event. As well as visiting the Gardens we had time to enjoy the Crafts & other stalls and Tea & Cakes in the Church.
