Description

Close to London, but with some most beautiful rural areas and plenty of UK heritage on offer, East Anglia will make a great Discovery Visit. Taking in Norwich, Cambridge and Essex, you will see three of the oldest YMCAs in the country as well as some great architecture and impactful YMCA work.

See Norwich, proud capital of the area; Cambridge, the historic university city; and Chelmsford, the oldest town in England and county town of Essex. Part of your stay will include an overnight stop in the halls of world renowned Cambridge University.

Highlights of this Discovery Visit will include:

● A civic reception dinner in Norwich

● Opportunities to serve at local YMCAs, helping with a garden project and problem solving with residents

● A night in the Cambridge University Halls

● Punting on the River Cam

● A good, old fashioned English picnic in the park

The activities planned will share and celebrate what is rewarding about YMCAs working collaboratively in this region of England, the role they play within local communities, and the approach of local YMCAs on how they work to seek local solutions to complex national problems.

There will be opportunity to learn about local culture and rich heritage of YMCA in East Anglia, meeting residents, young people, staff and volunteers

This visit is being coordinated by YMCA Norfolk, YMCA Trinity Group and YMCA Essex.
