Church Day Trips

Sadly, I have decided to give up arranging my public church day tours. I have been running these for over 30 years. They have been thoroughly enjoyable and I have met many interesting people along the way.

 

These tours take a huge amount of organisation and since Data Protection came into force it has been almost impossible to obtain contact details for individual churches. In an average year I have to contact in excess of 50 churches (just for day tours) and when you don't receive a response from half of them and spend hours trying to make contact it just takes the fun out of it.

 

For the past two years I have run the tours at a loss and COVID-19 has made the situation even worse.

 

However, now for the good news! I will continue to run my longer 3-night tours twice a year. These are generally better supported and take place across England and Wales, not just within striking distance of London.

 

I will also continue to lead Church Day Tours for pre booked groups and societies anywhere in England and Wales. Please do put the word around.

 

Thank you for your continued support.
