Cancellation Policy

Please note that no refunds will be given for cancellations for events costing £10.00 or less. In all other cases, cancellations will be accepted up to seven days before the date of a visit, but refunds will be subject to a £10.00 deduction for administrative costs. Please note that in the rare instances where members cannot pay until the day of a visit, they will still be charged the full amount for the day if cancelling less than seven days before the visit, or if they fail to attend.  This is necessary as the Society has usually paid in advance for a certain number of members to participate in e.g. a tour/lunch.  Separate arrangements are made for study weekends and foreign tours and terms are clearly stated on the printed details in each case.
