2017 was another very busy year for our charity, in particular, the change to a Charitable Incorporated Organisation.  I was also pleased that we can welcome a number of new key Volunteers into their roles as Organisers, while saying farewell and thank you to those who have devoted a tremendous amount of time and energy to the charity.

In the coming year, the Trustees will be concentrating on further developments to ensure continuity and future success, with a focus on supporting the work in the Divisions and Villages.  Our goal is to help maintain a strong passenger base, from our much appreciated existing passenger members and associate member groups, and to develop this where appropriate. We are interested to get feedback on any new trip destinations or potential new passengers.

As ever my thanks go to my fellow Trustees, the fantastic work of those who organise the Divisions and Villages and all our Volunteers, Drivers and Passenger Escorts.  We all join in wishing the Passengers, Supporters and Groups who use the Minibuses a Very Happy Christmas and lots of cheerful trips in 2018.
