We are planning a Summer Outing for Mast members, wives and friends.

Proposed date either Wednesday 14 or Thursday 15 August.

Your Committee has narrowed the search down to 4 possible trips, which cover, we hope, all tastes.

We ask all members AND wives, to place the 4 trips in order of preference.


PLEASE ADVISE PAUL BY PHONE 210834 , E-MAIL info@bedfordshirebasketmakers.co.uk OR VERBALLY BEFORE 31 APRIL.
