IMPORTANT CORRECTION to Branch Welcome Leaflet
Unfortunately an error crept into our Winter 2017‑8 Branch Welcome Leaflet. The phone number for our Local Adviser, Delia Wells, was incorrectly printed in two places. The correct number is 0344 225 3679.
An up-to-date version of the leaflet is always available at this link.
