Geography Swiss Trip

As you will hopefully be aware, a couple of letters were sent out recently regarding the cancellation of the Geography Department Swiss Trip. Please have a look for the email, or an eye out for the letter if you haven’t given us an email address. It contains important information about claiming your money back.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding regarding the trip. It is understandable, but so very disappointing the trip will not be going ahead in 2021.
