There's the usual range of activities, from a nice easy visit to the local Courtyard Cheese Centre near Feizor, to a strenuous walk to see the Red Squirrels at Snaizeholme (photo: John Wood 2017). There are a number of talks, and there's music each day to round off. What's not to like?

Time to start planning your week...
