SURREY @ DENMAN 2018 a note for your new Blue WI diary - Friday 13 to Sunday 15 JULY

When applying for tickets to an event advertised in SWIN it is preferable that each WI order and pay using one cheque. 
However, if the event is marked ** it means that INDIVIDUAL applications are permitted and a member’s personal cheque may be sent direct to the office when applying. 
Also, just because the ‘closing date’ has passed, does not necessarily preclude members from phoning the office to see if there are still
places/tickets available for the event, course or class – it is always worth a call.
