16 March AGM


May 25 - 28

HTA take the coach and cross the Channel to visit our twin town in France, Pontorson. Full programme of events is yet to be organised but previous trips have been most enjoyable and a good time was had by all! Participants stay with local families in Pontorson, so the likely cost is around £135 (coach and ferry), depending on numbers. For more information, please call Richard Pearce on 01793 762431 or use our contact page to get in touch.
