We have planned a programme for September 2021 to June 2022 and will post details and booking arrangements month by month.

Our next Coach Outing is to Pulborough Brooks RSPB on Saturday 4th December.

Reserve information

This coach trip will again cost £30 for members and non-members alike.
We will book a maximum 25 people onto a 49-seater coach to allow individuals extra room.
Masks/visors must be worn at all times on the coach.
Anderson Travel, our coach company, has received the Visit Britain ‘We're Good to Go’ industry standard mark.

Bookings must be made - paid for and confirmed - at least 10 days in advance of an outing.
Should more than 25 people book, you will be told you are on a waiting list
and will be refunded or be able to carry your payment over to another MBS coach trip if no place becomes available.
Should we need to cancel a coach trip e.g. if too few people book, you will similarly be "refunded".
We won't be checking vaccinations or tests etc but trust anyone coming on a coach trip to act responsibly for their safety and those of others. In the past we've offered "refunds" only if you cancel up to 2 weeks ahead of a coach outing. But you will now be refunded or be able to carry your payment over if you need to cancel for health reasons or your place can be filled from the waiting list.

To book your place on the coach, please use PayPal button to pay
PLUS EMAIL coach bookings to confirm name and phone number
Please also email to discuss alternative means of paying.

If all goes well subsequent coach trips will be Pagham Harbour in January 2022,
Keyhaven in February, Dungeness in March, Minsmere in April, Ashdown Forest in May and Rye Harbour in June.
