Classes coming for the armchair traveller

Terri Hunter puts her own spin on the old travelogue films

If you’re planning a trip to the U.K., Monterey Recreation Centre has a program to help you prepare.

“Classes for the armchair traveller,” as host Terri Hunter calls them, are a series of slide shows and chats about her visits to England. She talks about British history, the royal family and other topics.

Three different classes are available: Four Great English Cities (Wednesdays from Oct. 12 to Nov. 2, 10:30 a.m. to noon or 7 to 8:30 p.m.); Life in an English Village (Thursdays, Oct. 13 to Nov. 3, 1 to 2:30 p.m. or 7 to 8:30 p.m.); and Kent, the Garden of England (Wednesdays from Nov. 9 to 30, 10:30 a.m. to noon).

All classes will be at the rec centre, 1442 Monterey Ave. Cost for each four-class set is $58.50. For details or to sign up, call 250-370-7300.
