Change of Norfolk Holiday Dates. You may by now have received an email or letter from Tailored Travel re our changed dates for our 4 night holiday. (See below)
In the first instance – if you are unable to go on this holiday and don’t want to incur the £75 cancellation charge, it may be possible to find another NT member who would would like to replace you. Do not contact Tailored Travel but phone or email Louise Platt, email@example.com, who will try and help.
After watching the PM’s plan re Covid I decided that I should contact Tailored Travel promptly re our holiday as restrictions would not be lifted until 21st June.
I was very concerned about getting accommodation if I left things any longer as people would understandably be rushing to book holidays after this date and the George Hotel might not be available for us.
They contacted the hotel and reserved the next available date which was 28th June for our group. Tailored Travel were concerned about venues etc being open for our trip – but we felt that by this date most places would be open for us. Louise Platt
Change of dates for Norfolk Holiday
The Historic Houses & Heritage of Norfolk.
In agreement with Walsall National Trust Association and your group travel organiser and to ensure compliance with the latest Government guidelines, it has been decided to now run the above tour from 28 June to 2 July 2021.
In every respect, other than the dates of travel, the tour will be the same as originally planned. Final payment is now due on 3rd May 2021.
Everyone who was booked on the original tour is now booked onto the new tour dates and all payments previously made to us have been applied to the new tour. Click here for more details.
Walkers’ Holiday / Freedom Break: Malham 2022 Cancelled
We are unable to achieve the numbers for sole occupancy of Newfield Hall which means that we couldn’t have the number of single rooms we needed without incurring an extra charge of £20pp per night. Also we don’t have enough for the Discovery break. The holiday has therefore been cancelled. Refunds will be arranged.
Janet Clews has worked very hard to keep this holiday alive and has spent many hours of organisation and negotiation over a very difficult time. This is very much appreciated by the membership.

For the past 12 months we have all been affected by the coronavirus pandemic and the associations activities have been greatly curtailed, particularly in the summer of 2020. As a result the committee decided that we would not ask for a subscription in September 2020. We have agreed that the subscription due in September 2021 would be set at £8 for the year and not due until January 2022. We will then reassess the situation and hopefully the year starting September 2022 will be normal.
You will see that we only made donations to the National Trust of £750 , but it was felt prudent for us to hold a larger balance than usual for the time being.
Many thanks to Roger Turner for examining the Accounts.
Due to the current situation with Covid 19, the management committee has decided that there will be no WNTA lecture meetings until September 2021 at the earliest.
