Summer Outing 2024

The summer outing will be to Holy Island on Sunday 9th June. Access in favourable tides is from 08:40 until 15:35 Holy Island Safe Crossing Times (northumberland.gov.uk)

After Holy Island, we can head for Berwick Upon Tweed for a wander around the old town and harbours.

The evening meal is proposed for The Collingwood Arms at Cornhill but that is yet to be decided upon.

Again this year it will be car sharing for transport.
