Summary: Weekend Breaks 2017

  • Needs a location

  • Purpose

    This Page Summarizes all the GO:Heart Of England Weekend Breaks Planned for 2017, and it will be updated as each weekend break is added to our group events programme.

    It will list what weekend/holiday breaks are planned, and dates, but for detail of the actual activities, please use the calendar to find the event page in question.

    If you RSVP to attend this event, what this means is that you are putting yourself on circulation for significant updates to the weekend calendar. You may be content to keep track of the individual invites, in which case it is not necessary to receive these bulletins as well.
