Submit an Event: To submit an event for our programme click here. Anyone can submit an event, membership is not required, and all casual members can attend events they organise without paying our event surcharges.
Event Costs: To agree advances and cover of shortfalls for event costs then please contact the Chair or Treasurer at with full details of the event, actual and forecast income and expenditure (in particular, how much is at risk, when is commitment required, confirmed interest etc). One benefit members receive is that our group will advance money for deposits and balances etc - it often takes time before all attendees have paid. Whilst most events cover their costs, a few events occasionally struggle to fill all places and may incur a loss. Advance agreement is therefore highly recommended for all organisers as there is no guarantee that our group will underwrite any losses incurred. Agreement will usually be given to underwrite a certain amount of cost or number of places. All advances are normally expected to be returned in full within 14 days of completion of the event.

Second, it enables members to share photos etc. more easily with those who have attended or might be interested. You can join our Facebook page here.
