Proposed trip for Next Year

As we had only 27 people who showed an interest in the trip to Jersey we have decided not to go ahead with this event, but are looking into other venues that might be of more interest to our membership.


The committee would like to thank all those members who took the trouble to read and complete the questionnaire. Last Tuesday we had our planning meeting, when putting together the programme for 2017 we have taken into consideration all the comments and suggestions we received. We hope you will find that it offers something for all our membership. The 2017 Calendar will be published as soon as possible but as you can appreciate many of the events are not available for booking so far in advance.

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.
