Field trip Sat 5th Jan

The original destination of Blashford Lakes has been replaced by Slimbridge. I think south Hampshire is too far this time of year - the days are too short.
I plan to depart for Slimbridge at 08:30 from the usual place at St Margaret's Rd, Whitchurch, Cardiff. Please let me know if you want to come. I have a limited number of cut price guest vouchers for non-members of WWT.
