Visits Programme

The following visits are planned for CSTS members.

  • Note that for most visits we have to pay the venue in advance, so a member's place is only secured on receipt of their payment.   Should someone be unable to come on the visit, they are responsible for finding a replacement.  The visit secretary will assist, but is not able to obtain refunds.  
  • In many cases, the visits are joint with other interested local societies, to share the cost of transportation.  
  • When paying to the CSTS by internet (much preferred!), please use sort code 40-52-40, account no. 00016646 and include the payment reference given in the detail of the visit.  If paying by cheque please send it to the visit organiser and write the visit reference on the reverse.
  • In many cases, the visits are joint with other interested local societies, to share the cost of transportation.
    • Unfortunately, to ensure the success of everybody's day we are not able to wait more than 5 minutes after the stated departure time.
  • Details of each visit will be emailed to all members and, if necessary, you can talk to Bunny 01666 577275, Chris 01453 731781 or Daphne 01285 644082 or email them on
