Travel Group


The Travel Group is run by a small Working Party who meet regularly to organise and plan approximately three holidays within this country and abroad each year.  Meetings are held for all members every other 4th Wednesday in the month, providing a chance to meet other members over tea and biscuits, to watch presentations of recent trips and to discover and to discuss future plans.

The group is especially beneficial to single members, offering the safety and enjoyment of being within a group of like-minded travellers.
