Over the course of a year we aim to provide something for everyone. So
far our trips have included flower shows, National Trust properties and
other places of interest. We have theatre trips including musicals,
plays and ballet. We also run a short break holiday that is very
popular. Our members are very friendly and have found the outings very
enjoyable whilst making new friends.
Don’t worry if you are on your own as we will introduce you to other members.
All suggestions for future events are warmly welcomed. If you have always wanted to visit somewhere within daily travelling distance, do let us know.
Forthcoming events are publicised here, on the website, in the printed
newsletter and at the monthly meetings.
Bookings can be made via this website, by post or at the monthly meeting (both before and after the talk). Bookings are made on a “first come, first served” basis and once an event is full, your name can be added to a waiting list. For all bookings (including via the website) where payment has not been received, the booking will be deemed to be provisional. Full payment must then be received within 7 days. If payment is not received within this period, the booking will be cancelled.For programme and bookings forms click here.
