Head Office will reimburse the cost of travel and cover one night’s accommodation for two representatives per branch to participate in Away Days. Additional volunteers are welcome to attend, but their travel and accommodations must be covered either by the branch or themselves. All attendees must register their attendance. All attendees will receive lunch at the event, and those who are able to arrive the evening before are invited to a social gathering in a local pub, which will include drinks and a buffet.
