And here is some news on the clubs coach trips for 2020,
It has come to my attention that Trueman Coaches of Fleet, the firm that we have been using for our coach trips, entered Administration on Monday 27th April. Therefore the coach trips this year will not happen even if we were able to consider running them later in the year. Ian Blake

Hopefully we can look at coach trips for 2021.
