Outings and Holidays



Some words from the Outings and Holidays Coordinator

Barrister, Peter Thompson in his presentation at our November Monthly Meeting on Thursday suggested that we organise an Outing to the Old Bailey with a Guided Tour.
Our Outings Organiser asks if one of our members will come forward to head up this Outing which would slot into our 2022 Outings Programme. Several companies offer tours of the Old Bailey with Blue Badge Guides.
Please contact Peter Hetherington 07767 647714 or on email – who can guide you through the process.

As Covid restrictions are slowly being eased, a cautious but positive approach has been taken in arranging our Outings Programme this year.

Those of you who know me realise that I’m fond of walking. But the Outings Programme (see further down the page) tries to cater for everyone's interests. However we can’t satisfy everyone. As the old adage says ‘You can satisfy some of the people all the time ------ but you can’t please all of the people all of the time’.

So if YOU would like something to be considered for the next programme please let me know.

Peter Hetherington.
Outings Co-ordinator.

All events will comply with Covid regulations.

Leadership of Outings is shared with the Outings team - Peter Gibbons, Thelma Jones, Paul de Jongh, Peter Lambert, Rosemary Webb, and myself. I am urgently seeking more leaders and an Assistant Co-ordinator.
