3rd-10th October 2016

I have now arranged another holiday to Majorca for next year and have sent details to the 27 people who have paid their deposit.

We will be travelling with Jet2Holidays again and staying at the same hotel as in 2015.  The price is £505 pp.

There are still one or two people who haven't yet sent me their passport details and I would be pleased if you could let me have these.  A photocopy of your passport page is fine - either emailed or posted.

Everyone travelling has now paid their final balance and I will send out further details nearer the time.  Please don't forget to send me your passport details as soon as possible.
