Radley Retirement Group – Newsletter March 2015


At our February meeting we had a huge turnout for a wine and cheese tasting given by Waitrose (can’t think why).  We all agreed that the combinations of wine with cheese which had been chosen were most enjoyable, and sometimes surprising. 

The future…..

On Tuesday 17th March we are hoping to run a coach for a day trip to the Royal Worcester Porcelain museum, which is in the old factory.  The cathedral is just 2 minutes walk from the museum, and the town centre is 5 minutes away.  The city’s museums and art galleries are within a half-mile walk. 
Cost: £17.50 for members (£19.50 for non-members).

On Tuesday 21st April we are going to Cambridge for the day.  There are many things to do in Cambridge, all within walking distance: there are 52 shops in the arcade, there is an Open-top bus ride, Botanical Gardens and of course the world-famous Fitzwilliam Museum.  We will depart at 8.30am and leave Cambridge at 4.30pm. 
Cost: £17.50 for members (£19.50 for non-members).


We are offering 2 dates to go to the Oxford Playhouse:

  • “ I believe in Unicorns” on Thurs 2 April at 2pm. (now full)
  •  “The King’s Speech” on Thursday, 14 May at 2.30pm 

If you are interested in going to “The King’s Speech”, please talk to Andrea Saunders.  Payment must be made at the time of booking.


  • Spring holiday in Falmouth, Cornwall in May 2015
  • Lytham St Anne’s, in November 2015 – our festive break …

If you are interested in our holidays please contact Dot Hewlett.

Our next meeting is our Annual General Meeting, on Tuesday, 10th March.  If anyone would like to join the Committee, please contact Carol on 01235 526326.  The meeting will be followed by Age UK “Generation games”.  Doors open at 1.30pm and the meeting begins at 2pm.
