Club News

The trip to the Dutch bulb fields was amazing, Keukenhof was full of the most exquisite collection of various flowers, tulips, daffodils, orchids and many more, the weather on the day was overcast with some showers, but did not detract from the amazing sight of the gardens.
The next day the weather was fine for our trip to Enkhuizen, for a trip on a boat to Medemblik where we had a fabulous lunch, then on to a steam train for a journey through the countryside.
The hotel was perfect, good food, lovely staff & comfortable beds.

The trip to Waddesdon Manor has been cancelled due to lack of interest.

Cheque Payments

We have recently had a number of cheques returned to us as the drawer is in the process of switching banks. I don’t know what the new bank is telling you but the result is that a cheque drawn on your old bank will be rejected and represented by our bank to your new bank. On it’s own this would not be a problem, however, each time this happens we are charged £4 by our own bank. I am therefore making you aware that you are fully responsible for any charges we receive from this process.

Ron Bunce Treasurer
