The Far Away Days are organised by Melvyn Rees [8446 3029 or 07903 456385, firstname.lastname@example.org]. These are coach outings venturing outside London itself (the province of ‘Away Days’) to enjoy visiting and learning about places of interest such as country houses, gardens in the summer, picturesque towns and villages, and places of historic interest (such as Chartwell). The outings last a whole day, picking up at East Finchley tube station and getting home by 6.00 – 7.00. There are up to three visits per term.
Far Away Days are open to ALL members. You need not register to be in a group. Just choose an outing that interests you and apply. You’ll need to pay in advance for coach travel and admission charges to secure a place. Any bookings received before the “booking opens” date will be held without processing until that date. Should there be more than the capacity of the outing, a ballot will be held to select those who have been successful. This is intended to give all members a fair chance to apply whether they use the internet or not. Far Away Days will be advertised in the Newsletter and Update and forthcoming (and recent) outings are listed below in date order.
