Outings

Booking is essential to reserve places on all Social Events and Outings as they are dependant on numbers and are due to cancellation if insufficient numbers of members register their interest.

Payments and deposits for trips can be made by cash or cheque at monthly meetings and a full list of membership and speakers meetings can be found on the Meetings page. To see the kind of days out we are arranging have a look at our Previous Outings page.

Always bring along your receipt when attending any outing as they will be required to access the coach.
