Guided tour of the Dogs Trust Centre

Wednesday 29th January at 11.00am

 

Last April Sarah Hey came to our monthly meeting to tell us about the work they do at the Dogs Trust Centre. She has offered to give a group of us a behind the scenes tour of the centre, which should take about an hour. It will cost £5 per person and will include refreshments.

The centre is normally closed to visitors on Wednesdays, but Sarah would prefer to limit our group size to no more than 20 people.

It is only 15 minutes from Sherburn and has ample parking space, if you wish to make your own way there. If you are happy to car share, please let me know.

June 2020 - ROYAL AIR FORCE FYLINGDALES 7.00pm -

We are preparing for a visit to RAF Fylingdales in June 2020.

They conduct visits for groups up to a maximum of 15 people and a minimum of 12.

These visits are available on Tuesday evenings only.

The visit starts at 7 pm and lasts for approximately two and a half hours.

There is a small charge for the visit; this money goes into a public account that funds welfare opportunities across the Station.

They currently have a huge demand for visitors and their programme is fully booked well in to 2020.

We have asked to be added to their waiting list.

Please consider the following restrictions placed on visitors:

  1. The SSPAR may cause issues for visitors who use hearing aids; any such person should be advised to seek advice from the manufacturer or supplier.
  2. Proximity to the SSPAR will cause issues for anyone fitted with a pacemaker and as such unfortunately we cannot accept anyone who uses one for health and safety reasons.
  3. The SSPAR is a multi-storey building with approximately double the amount of stairs between floors that you would find in the average domestic dwelling. In the event of emergency evacuation these are the only routes out. Therefore visitors with mobility problems will not be able to join the visit for health and safety reasons.
  4. We need to submit our group details approximately 8 weeks before any visit and cannot be changed at a later date.
  5. For security purposes they do not permit mobile phones, cameras, laptop computers, recording devices or any other form of electrical equipment to be brought into the SSPAR.
  6. Please be aware that visits can be cancelled at short notice due to operational commitments.
