If we have to make any changes to the published programme they will appear here
and on the “News” page. An updated version of the programme will be posted whenever possible, and will have a version number and date to avoid confusion.
If you know any members who don’t use the internet please keep them up to date.

We look forward to seeing you all this season, and remember, new members are always welcome so please encourage your friends to join us.

Our planned programme of events for the 2023/2024 season has nearly finished. The Programme for 2023-2024 (version 4, June 2023 with some 2024 locations still to be confirmed) can be viewed/ downloaded here (opens in a new window/tab). Although I will attempt to keep this up to date and update new versions when changes are made, I recommend that you check the News page for any last minute changes. A simple version just listing Saturday Walks and Winter Presentations can be viewed/downloaded here.
There are links to the individual activities below, which will be updated whenever something changes. Although there has been a modest increase in coach prices, we have decided to keep the price of membership which is due in March, at £10 for the coming season (March 2024 – February 2025). For more information please see one of our Treasurers, Chris Butler or Diane Whitworth.
We run different events throughout the year with Saturday Walks, Mid-week Outings and Presentations.
Saturday Walks: All Year
Mid-week Outings: May to September
Presentations: September to March (£2.50 includes coffee/tea and biscuits)

We also have a Jacob’s Join meeting (Wednesday 13th of December 2023) which is free, with members bringing food and a raffle prize, and our AGM (Wednesday the 14th of February 2024) which will be followed by members’ images and possibly a quiz. These will both be held at the Forest Gate Baptist Church, and information about the venue can be seen here.

Our successful Buffet Lecture followed by a hot-pot supper is held at Blackpool Cricket Club, West Park Drive, Blackpool, FY3 9EQ. Tickets are £7 and need to be bought in advance. This season we hope to hold it on the 16th of March 2024.
