Calais to Carcassonne
The Journey from Calais to Carcassonne will eventually be accomplished in stages each covered on a separate page, with our discussion focussed here.
The idea for this “Calais to Carcassonne”, arose from a trip through France and noting that many places, not just Calais, share British & French Connections; history, religion, geography and geology, science & maths, industrial archaeology, language, genealogy, sociology, politics – they’re all here so there is the opportunity for you to contribute if you want to do so. We hope that you will.
The route is not predetermined; we began the journey at Calais
in October 2016.

This post was originally developed as input to the U3APlus programme. We hope that it remains generally relevant.
Here is some information for those of us with Age-related issues, Sensory issues
and Mobility issues.
I am a member of Bristol U3A. Our monthly meeting place is Broadmead Baptist Church Hall, Union St. Bristol. There is a lift to the meeting room which has a good PA system and a Hearing Induction Loop (AFILS). Toilets, including for disabled, on the same floor.
Our Annual Bulletin, distributed to members by post, includes symbols for each group or activity indicating: Disabled or Easy access; Some steps; Parking possibilities; Time to nearest bus stop, Venue size and a phone contact number.Our home page, http://u3asites.org.uk/bristol/home has the annual groups’ programme too, and each group (at least all the ones I checked) also includes the information on access, parking transport etc.
Here. on this website, is a place where you can ask a question about the issues listed under the photo, or engage in a conversation about how you, or your own U3A are dealing with these issues. This page is not directly linked to the Bristol U3A, so if you want to contact them you can do so so via the home page. http://u3asites.org.uk/bristol/home.
