General information

All activities will have a cost next to them, as we have to pay for hall and minibus hire etc.

Most of the trips will leave at approx. 9-10am and be back about 4pm. This is decided nearer the time once we have all the passengers and then we can arrange pick up times. Someone will then phone or email you before to give you your pick up time and place.

Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis once payment has been received by the office. Please book in plenty of time so we can book buses.

Contact Freya or the Office (01435 873888) if you have any questions.

Monies can be dropped into our letterbox at the Office in a named envelope, and please let us know which trip the money is for.

If you are worried about accessibility for any of our activities or trips, or have any questions please come and see us to talk it over.
