Virtual tours of London - 5th October

Exploring London Group 3 have organised a virtual tour of "The Alleyways of the Old City of London" on Friday 5th October. This is described by London Walks as one of the best virtual tours you'll ever experience - the tour explores London's capillaries, the tiniest city streets you'll ever thread your way through, and you won't find these places in London's guidebooks, they're that tucked away.
They have a few spaces available, and are opening them up to to any members of our U3A who would like to go. Contact Sue McLennan if you're interested.

Scam Alert

If you get an email, apparently from the NHS, that asks you for details of your bank account or credit card, then it's from a nasty crook, after your money. Delete it!
