Booking Instructions Day Trips & Theatre Tours 2018

Leaders – Jean Stanford, , Pauline Thewell, Rosie Foulkes, Diane Ramsay Arthur

Many thanks to all those who have supported our previous day trips.  We have made some amendments to the booking system which we hope will help you to book and enjoy a trouble free day out.

Booking Details will be sent out for each trip. In the first instance please phone(at a reasonable time preferably between the hours of 9am & 5pm Monday-Friday) or email at any time, to find out if places available.  When places are confirmed, you will be asked for payment. Please send booking form, payment cheque, and SAE if you are not on email, to the named tour leader.  Each leader is happy to answer any questions relating to their tour, especially access concerns. Please ensure dates, pick up point and times are noted,

Comfort stops are made on journeys of more than one and a half hours and coaches normally have an ‘emergency toilet’.

The cost quoted includes the driver’s tip and all entrance fees, except where stated. No meals are included. If a property is marked ‘NT’ please bring your valid National Trust membership card for free admission.

Pick up points:    Each tour is shown with boarding places and times. Not all pick-up points are used for every tour. Please do not change your pick up point without speaking to the tour leader directly. Failure to do so may cause delays.

Please check pick up points and times carefully.  To avoid delays we suggest arriving at the stop approximately 10 minutes before the stated pick up time.

Coaches will only stop at agreed pick-up/drop off points which change, depending on the route.  Currently main stops may include:

Westbury     Haynes Road bus stop or Chandlers depot if using Chandlers.

Trowbridge  Bus stop opposite Trinity Church alongside the park and train station.

Melksham    Kings Road Car Park

Cancellation:   If members have to cancel their booking due to unforeseen circumstances, then a refund will be made on entrance tickets if they are re-allocated or not already purchased.  Travel refunds may be given only when coach costs have been met.

No refunds if cancellation is 7 days or less prior to the date of the trip.

It is suggested that you carry medication details. Emergency contact details should be handed to the Trip leader on the day.

Note: Data Protection: Members should not pass on the organisers details. All such details should be deleted after each trip
