Outings are arranged monthly throughout the year. With the exception of Theatre trips to Norwich, transport is provided from pick-up points around Lowestoft.

The outings are friendly and can be enjoyed by members who are on their own.

Suggestions for outings are always welcome and each year's programme will be decided by members' participation in a survey.
