If you are interested in any of the events please complete the appropriate reply slip(s), and return them with your cheque(s) and a stamped address envelope to the named person by the dates given. We would appreciate one cheque per event please.

If you wish to bring a friend there will be an additional charge of £2 per event for non-members, if space permits after the closing date.

On the reply slips we are asking for the name of a family member or friend with whom we can get in touch with during an event or outing should we need to.

Polite request please – When on a coach trip from Croome we ask that you park at the top right hand side of the car park, behind the ambulance garage, thus freeing up spaces for visitors.


2019 Holiday

Holiday 2019. To Kent and Sussex 19th -23rd May

I am delighted to say that the holiday bookings have been very successful, selling out within 2 weeks of advertising. Waiting List only.

After our successful holiday to Devon this year we have decided to ‘go it alone’ once more. We have booked the Royal Victoria Hotel, in Hastings. We had hoped to stay more centrally in Kent but having found the Royal Victoria we are very pleased with its position which is right on the sea front, this is a treat in itself as we live so far from the sea.
