1.  Subject: Cable Car Visit

Hello Porirua U3A members,
Our next trip will be on Saturday 15 June to the top of the Wellington Cable Car, where we will visit the Cable Car Museum, have a cuppa at the Cabletop Eatery, and finally visit the Fragrifert Perfumeur next door.  Fragrifert Parfumeur is a Victorian perfumery where all perfumes are hand crafted originals, made the traditional way. There are 29 Fragrifert perfumes available to be sampled. I’ve attached photos of the shop and the cable car museum. It might be possible to have a short tour of the shop, depending on how busy they are. .
We will take the 9.39 train from Porirua into Wellington, a bus down Lambton Quay and then the cable car up through the light show to Upland Road.

The train, bus and cable car trips involve little walking, However, should anyone want to join our group but have significant mobility difficulties, I am happy to pick up passengers in my car at the Whitby Shopping Centre at 10 and drop them off at the top of the Cable Car.There would be a small charge for petrol and parking costs. Members must let me know if they would like to come into town in my car rather than take public transport. Members are also free, of course, to take their own cars into Wellington to join our group.

Please let me know if you intend to join this trip, and how you will be travelling into Wellington. You can contact me by replying to this email or by ringing or texting me on 0276770180.

I hope you can join me on what will be an enjoyable mid-winter outing and chance to catch up with friends.  Bill
