Burbage Visit – Thursday 4th July

Bookings are now being taking for our Members’ Visit on Thursday 4th July 2024 at 1.30, which will be a guided walking tour of Burbage hosted by the Burbage Heritage Group. Please contact Margaret Lewis to book your places. The walk will follow their published heritage trail and is only ¾ of a mile of easy walking and will take about an hour and a quarter. Burbage has a long history that we hope you will find interesting. It is 20 miles away,

Membership Fees – 2024

The Committee met recently to review the situation and, in the light of increasing costs, especially speakers’ fees, we have recommended that the charge for membership in 2024 will be £15 pa. The entry fee to meetings for Members remains at £1.50 per meeting but has increased to £3.50 for non-members. This is the first rise for many years and we hope you understand the reasons for our decision.
