Here is an up to date list of events and outings for this summer. It is hoped to organise more events so keep checking here as the page will be updated as soon as details and/or changes are available. Any Committee Member should have firm dates nearer the time of outings, so if you canít visit the web site please ring someone to find out.

Horse Trams - Saturday 17th July  (new date)
Meet at the Bottleneck car park around 3.30pm on Saturday 17th July. We will hopefully then be early enough to queue up to be able to all get on the same tram, about 3.40 . We will ride to the other end, and then go round the stables and the tram sheds, and take photos (Men at Work ??)  and eventually ride back again to the Sea Terminal, then a meal at La Piazza, the table is booked for 6pm. We don't need to pre-order as they are quiet at that time,  Please let me know if you will be coming, so I can tell the restaurant how many.
