June 2024 — Visit to Lapworth Geology Museum at Birmingham University
Jim’s plan is to meet up at the Skateboard car park at 09:00 and car share to Ledbury train station (parking there is limited), aiming for the 10:00 train to University (Birmingham) station, with the journey taking an hour.
As Jim communicated earlier:
At the moment I am awaiting a response from the Lapworth Museum on the university site In Birmingham. I know in the past they welcomed groups from Malvern u3a and did lay on some good behind the scenes viewings. Since I was last there the whole museum has been revamped and there are also other attractions nearby. See https://www.birmingham.ac.uk/facilities/lapworth-museum 
Just to add to the day out experience, we could drive to Ledbury and pick up the train to take us to University station which is only a few hundred yards from the museum. Looks as if the group rate for rail tickets is £9.70.
