Meet at the location given, no later than the time stated. Please can all those proposing to come on Field Trips follow the guidelines which have been sent to members in the past and which are available on this website here. In order to indicate the numbers proposing to go on each trip, could you please contact the leader/organiser designated for the trip concerned (phone numbers below).
