5 August at 13:00 Annual Picnic

This year after a couple of years in South Manchester, our annual picnic returns to its very first home, Heaton Park in North Manchester.

Heaton Park is extremely large!

To ensure we meet up, please park in the car park which is off Sheepfoot Lane (the A6044.) The driveway leading to the car park is just after the junction of Sheepfoot Lane with Meade Hill Road which will be on your right hand side if you are heading east on Sheepfoot Lane.

The format is very simple:

Below is a map. This has a pin at the car park.

The event below is not yet open for booking but please pencil it into your diary.

7 October 2018 - Visit to The National Holocaust Centre and Museum

We have visited The Holocaust Centre and Museum (which is near Nottingham) on two previous occasions, in 2007 and again in 2013. See our page "MJF visits the Holocaust Centre."

As five years will have elapsed, we are organising another visit. Like last time, we will organise a coach from somewhere in Manchester to the Holocaust Centre and back. Precise details have yet to be finalised, so the event cannot be booked yet. However the following arrangements are likely to apply:

Date: 7 October 2018
Time:

We are booking time in the Holocaust Centre 12:00 - 16:00.

Driving to Nottingham takes about two hours, but we have not fixed a precise departure time from Manchester.

Food You can take a packed lunch. Also, the Holocaust Centre tea room has a small selection of snacks, cakes and confectionary and offers lunch in the form of soup and sandwiches. There is no kosher restaurant.
