We run two outings a year to nearby cultural and historic places of interest.  The charges made cover the cost of travel to and from the venue and any entrance fees.   Refreshments are invariably available at extra cost. Invitations to join an outing are issued using the membership wide e-mail system and notices are displayed on our public notice boards.  Booking are taken on a first come first served basis.

Ideas for visits we might arrange in coming months are always welcome.
