Please book with the Leader in advance. Members can find contact details in their Spring and Summer 2022 newsletter. This is essential for those meetings where numbers are limited and has several benefits for all meetings: the Leader is aware who is coming and can deal with any queries before the meeting (such as car-sharing, if required); in the unlikely event that arrangements need to change or the meeting has to be cancelled, attendees can all be contacted promptly and easily
If you book your place and are then unable to attend, please contact the Leader immediately. The leader can then contact other members if there is a waiting list.
