Visiting Country Churches Group



This group was previously known as The Antiques and Collectables Group. But in June 2014, it was decided to change its remit a little, and we were invited to merge with the Visiting Country Churches Group with Greater Thame U3A who lead the group.  Therefore, as the new name implies we will be focusing on getting out and about to discover the gems of churches both local and further afield.





Entrance charges, lunch etc on outings are paid by individuals as necessary.

An appeal from Elizabeth

Please could you let each month’s organiser know whether you are a car driver and have space for a passenger or need a lift. This seems to have been forgotten recently and there was one member who could not go last month because she did not have a lift.

Thank you. Elizabeth Bridges – 216646

Please note that this is a joint group led by Greater Thame U3A. Most contact points and meeting points relate to GTU3A. Jane Brown can provide liaison for Haddenham if necessary.
 No meetings in December, January or February
