I’m Mark Goodair, your Events Secretary. If you want to come on any of our trips, you can contact me by phone on 07908 553206 (new number), email or leave a message at the Red Shed (Wakefield Labour Club 01924 215626). A £5 deposit is required for bus trips. (For day trips the charge is now £15). Principal pick-up points are South Kirkby Browns Coaches, Pontefract near Golden Ball and Wakefield Red Shed. When Northbound, pick-up and set-down in Leeds can be arranged. When Westbound pick-up and set-down just off the M62 can be arranged.

Keep checking this page - we often get offers from brewers that we can't refuse, but at too short notice to get into the O to K Magazine.

For coach trips we ask for a £5 deposit , which is not normally refundable. It is usually also possible to pick up at Browns Coaches in South Kirkby, and en route for CAMRA Members from neighbouring branches where feasible.
