Out and About

Our schedule of tours and visits has proved very popular with members because they provide further opportunities for socialising and learning about our community in an interesting and fun way.  

Over the past couple of years we have visited a variety of sites around Canterbury including exploration of Ohinetahi in Governors Bay, ogling Otahuna Gardens in Tai Tapu, rambling through Broadfield Gardens, traipsing around Travis Wetlands, meandering through the Air Force Museum and gathering at the Art Gallery.     Your ideas for an excursion will be gratefully received.

To join any excursion,  add your name to the Sign Up Sheet at the monthly meeting, or contact our Excursion Coordinator Bev on tel: 352 4064/email: u3achristchurchnorthwest@gmail.com.

We are constantly updating these details so please keep checking this page.
