Programme of events 2018


There is a field trip on the second Friday of each month, and either a Saturday or Sunday field trip most months.

Evening meetings are held on the third Monday of each month: in summer these are usually field trips, and in winter months based at the Royal Oak, Dacre Banks.

Events may be subject to change. For further information and to book a place on a trip, members should contact the event organiser and non-members should contact the Club’s email address. Trips may be cancelled if the weather is poor or there appears to be insufficient interest, so we need to know in advance who wants to go. There are usually opportunities to car share for events.


There will be an individual charge for events marked with an asterisk (*).
