MANDURAH U3A members visited Norfolk Island earlier this year and at their recent meeting, some wore convict outfits and presented items including the Pitcairn islanders, St Barnabas Chapel, the two penal settlements, rare and endangered plants and birds and the Cyclorama that depicts Mutiny on the Bounty.

Mandurah Mayor Marina Vergone was a special guest.

Mandurah U3A meets two or three times a week at Ac-cent Mandurah at 1.30pm.

The group is preparing a history book to be presented at Christmas marking 25 years since its inauguration.
