After 6 years, Nigel and Vanessa Knott are stepping down from running this popular group. There will therefore be a vacancy for a Group Leader.

This month's trip will be to Appleshaw on Wednesday 24th October, and the final meeting will be a Christmas lunch at The White Hart in Penton on Wednesday 28th November.

All help will be given to make the transition to a new Group Leader as smooth and seamless as possible.
