Keeping our optimism

The announcements last week once again cast a cloud of uncertainty over our plans. We have been here before and until we have further clarity regarding the significance of the new variant it would be premature to change anything. All those booked on overseas tours will of course be kept fully informed as soon as we know more. In the meantime please continue to rest assured that if we feel that there is an unacceptable risk of disruption at the point of making irrecoverable payments for flihgts or ground arrangements we will either cancel or postpone and any payments made by those travelling will be fully refundable or transferable. This is the strategy we adopted with both the Netherlands and Costa Rica and in hindsight, it was the correct one.

In the meantime, although all the artwork had been completed for the new 2022 calendar we are holding off printing until we know more. We remain optimistic that despite this most recent bump in the road, the recovery continues and we will be able to complete the tours as planned. However, looking ahead and following demand, there will be a shift in emphasis towards UK events. We will be updating everyone by e-mail accordingly and of course the calendar page of this website will be kept up to date.

To whet your appetite, and to remind ourselves that there are some wonderful places on our doorstep, here's an image of the delightful coastline of Northumberland at Banburgh where, a couple of weeks ago, we enjoyed a fantastic few days.

Keep safe, well and positive!
