HWC trips 2008

This contains details of all the longer trips we have planned for the club this year. These trips include a stay away from home, normally for a long weekend. Transport to these is typically arranged by sharing private cars rather than using a minibus, as this gives more flexibility to come and go.

You must be a member of the club to come on one of these trips. Please contact one of the committee if you want to join, and we will be glad to tell you more about the club.

Note - most of the items below are provisional and depend upon getting people to organise them!  We'll discuss this at the AGM.
