Bingham U3A's 20th Anniversary

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.
Following the results form the questionnaires sent out earlier this year we are arranging a special speaker for the meeting in September 2020 together with various other activities -  a boat trip (see Travel Page) and a quiz afternoon with tea were suggested.
Please contact Rosie Garner, Chairman, with your ideas or post your suggestions in the Box at the Monthly Meeting.
Help with organising this event will be warmly appreciated.
