DAY TRIPS GROUP The DAY TRIPS GROUP are urgently looking for additional helpers to supplement the existing team of four - Bill & Janet McIntyre, Steve Hale and Greer Tilbrook who is the Team Leader BUT Greer is hoping to move away from the area in the Spring. So unless at least two more people join the team there will only be 5 trips in 2018 (and two of these are being run by other Groups) instead of the customary 7 trips. Unless we can recruit more helpers it is possible that this very popular activity may disappear altogether by 2019 - so please do not let this happen. Being a helper is not an onerous task as you would probably only have to organise one trip a year and help would always be available from other members of the Group. Please contact GREER TILBROOK
