Welcome

Field Trips

Field Trips are a regular feature of our activities many being local but a couple of times a year we go further afield for a few days residential to places such as Titchwell in North Norfolk, Minsmere in Suffolk, Portland Bill  or North Kent Marshes.  We had hoped to go to Exmouth this year 2020 but Covid intervened
