Turkey and Tinsel Update

The situation at the moment is still very fluid and filled with uncertainty with regard to group holiday breaks. Although a lot of Hotels are now open there are restrictions in place eg.  No buffet breakfasts, staggered meal times, no entertainment and safe distancing at all times.  There is the added complication of coach travel which has not been resolved yet.  We have had no opportunity to sell the remaining rooms because of the enforced shutdown and no sign at present of such an opportunity.  Final payment date looms in September. I have been in discussion with Airedale Tours and, with the above mentioned drawbacks in mind, have regretfully come to the decision that this break will not go ahead.  Your deposits are safe and have not been processed and these will be returned to you asap.  This is a big disappointment as this will be the first such break we have missed in 12 years.   Maybe things will be much improved in the Spring and we can look at booking an attractive break in 2021. Let’s sincerely hope so.  Many thanks and sincere apologies to members who have already booked on this trip.  In the meantime keep well, keep safe and enjoy the restrictions that have already been lifted.  Best Wishes Marj

  1. Oh Marj what a disappointment, and what a lot of hassle it’s causing you. Can’t say I’m surprised that it’s been necessary to cancel the Christmas holiday, but was so looking forward to visiting Ilfracombe! Hope all is well with you and you’re still coping with lockdown. Will we ever get back to “normal”. We’re taking a big step and going out for our dinner on Sunday!

  2. Thank you for letting us know Marj and for all your hard work concerning the trip. Hope you are keeping well and that we can all get together in the not to distant future. Joan and Terry.x

  3. Hi Marj,
    So sad that our T&T not going ahead this year, after all your planning. However, I’m sure most of us agree that it was the best decision. It’s always so much fun, looked forward to by us all. Roll on 2021, when hopefully we will all be holidaying again. Thanks Marj for all your hard work on our behalf. Stay well and safe.
    Rhona
