Bingham U3A would like to celebrate its 20th Anniversary in 2020 with a bit of a do. I know this seems a long way off but we request your suggestions  of how to make this an event that everyone will like and which will be appropriate for the occasion.

Please contact Val Scott on 01949 837376 with your ideas or post your suggestions in the Box at the Monthly Meeting
