This is followed after Easter by approximately 2-3 weekly field visits into Cambridgeshire and the surrounding counties, from April until September, with a mixture of half day and whole day trips. A detailed programme is issued twice yearly. A donation of £2 will be requested to pay for our speakers' travelling expenses and for donations to Trust sites that we visit when appropriate.
