Members are reminded that whilst on trips, parking at Hatchlands or Clandon Park is a privilege, granted at the discretion of the Administrator, and may be withdrawn if the following request is not complied with.
A note identifying you as a West Surrey Centre member should be left on the dashboard at either venue.
Parking at Hatchlands, unless otherwise instructed by the "Gatekeeper" on the day, please park closely together on the grass area to the left as you approach the main car park - if necessary park behind other vehicles if space is limited. You must not park in the main or overflow car parks unless instructed on the day.
If the gate is not open when you arrive, we strongly advise that you do not wait on the A246 as this can cause a traffic hazard. There are lay-bys etc nearby where you could wait.
Parking at Clandon
Please park closely together along the parking line, on your left as you enter the car park, which follows the curve of the main driveway between the entrance to the car park and the kiosk. Any overflow cars should park closely together along one of the parking lines on your right (and at right angles to the first arrivals) preferably the first line on the right hand side i.e. furthest from the kiosk but nearest to the coach area.
3. Please remember to bring your National Trust card on visits to N.T. properties. If you cannot show it, when requested, you may be required to pay any entrance charges.

They will generally be of moderate difficulty (not for strollers), 4 to 6 miles circular completed by lunchtime. Stout footwear (not trainers) and waterproof clothing are essential as we will walk in all weathers. It is suggested you bring a drink and a snack.
Walkers take part entirely at their own risk. The Centre and walk leaders cannot accept responsibility for any injuries or losses during the course of a walk. No dogs please. No booking necessary, just turn up.
ABSENCE OF ORGANISERS
It has been agreed that Sue Terry 01932 342627 will deal with queries about the current programme of events if the relevant organiser is away on holiday, etc. for more than a few days. Some organisers may leave a message to that effect on their answerphone.
It is regretted that coaches cannot wait for late comers for coach outings. Please do not phone Hatchlands Park or Clandon if, at short notice, you are unable to come or to arrive in time for departure.
CLANDON or HATCHLANDS PARK
Please ensure that you comply with the request made at the beginning of this booklet regarding parking.

If, after 3 weeks your cheque has been cashed but you have not received your ticket, please phone the trip organiser.
It is regretted that no refunds can be made unless a member’s ticket is passed to someone on the waiting list for a particular visit. If you have to cancel, please telephone the organiser of that event to see if there is a waiting list.
If you are on a waiting list your name and telephone number will be given to the cancelling member so they can make direct contact to find a replacement. If you do not wish these to be disclosed please indicate this on your booking slip.
Reservations may not be made by telephone although enquiries are welcome. Once programmes have been out for about two weeks it is advisable to telephone for availability before sending cheques.
In order to minimise the effects of postal delays, organisers will allow ten days after the mailing before allocating tickets. Random draws will be made for over-subscribed events. Applications should be made promptly.
Please remember to carry your National Trust membership card when the visit is to a National Trust property.
Members should be aware that on all coach outings there may be hazards such as slippery floors, steep slopes, awkward or uneven steps, busy roads to cross etc.
If you have a sight or mobility difficulty you should book with a member of the Centre who is able to help you as the organisers and other participants cannot be responsible.
While every effort will be made to keep to the published programme, it must be understood that as arrangements are made so far in advance it is not always possible to be exact over timings and circumstances may dictate changes which may be made at the discretion of the organiser.
Please do not use mobile phones on the coach unless absolutely necessary.
Members are asked to note that the Centre has a definitive document, 'Evidence of Insurance Letter', which can be shown to members who wish to know more detail about the insurance cover in place for this supporter group.
