 We are working extremely hard and it is quite obvious that many of you have received our new brochure as so many of you have contacted us to book some really exciting shows, days out, short breaks, holidays and cruises.  The phone has been red hot and it's been so wonderful to see so many familiar faces returning to us after what has been a challenging time for each and everyone.  We also sadly remember those that are no longer with us but enjoyed many of our outings, we will not forget the fun and laughter we had with you. Memories are so very special.  

We are still catching up on the many holidays that have been rescheduled from 2020 to 2021 and now to 2022 - who would ever have believed this - we would like to take this opportunity of thanking all of those that have stuck with us and have been happy to reschedule along the way, your support has kept us going.   

As you can see below we have many new trips and events and there will be plenty more to come in 2022, there has been so much behind the scenes work going on to arrange these exciting new places to visit and shows to see.  Keep your eyes peeled on our webpage and office window for even more to come!

                                   We certainly all need something to look forward to!
