Trips and Weekends

The cost of trips and weekends away is advertised at the time they are offered. The Club is keen to enable as many members to participate as fully as possible and looks to keep cost as low as possible. Discounts have been made available in cases of hardship and such an approach to a committee member will be treated in confidence.
