Out With A Difference
The Out With A Difference (OWAD) group specialises in arranging inexpensive day excursions for members. They are all very well researched and special care is taken for the arrangements involved.
All our travellers owe many thanks to all who make Out With a Difference member friendly. It would be difficult to maintain the arrangements for these trips without this help because of the variety and number of trips arranged.
The day trips are well patronised especially considering the current economic environment which makes it extremely difficult for those on a limited income to fully enjoy the range of trips on offer.
Similarly while theatre costs are rising and this does affect the number who can attend all the popular shows, the selected venues are always well patronised.
An enormous amount of work goes into making these day away trips pleasant for all who choose to travel with us.
It is only by us having good coach loadings that we are able to offer “trips” at reasonable rates. The more who travel, “helps us to help you” in maintaining low costs.
Please note that pick-ups and drop-offs will only be at certain designated bus stops. Please check before booking. Drop-offs will only be at the stop where you were picked up. Bookings and payments with cards or cash are available during office hours of 8.30 am to 3.30 pm only. Phone bookings are available during these hours also. There will be no bookings in the office after coach trips if we arrive back after 3.30 pm.
We like to look after those who may be less mobile than others or who are V.I.P. For us to give this service we need to know this information very early when booking. We can request special areas in most theatres and on our coaches.
NOTE: The Centre has available for the use of members one wheelchair and one mobile walker – both donated to us for use in and out of the Centre.
Should you have the need for the wheelchair – i.e. to help you get around in larger areas, parks, large buildings etc., we recommend you book for this service when making your original enquiry.
For more information on the various trips that are available, contact the convenor of Out With A Difference, Mrs Lyn Finn on Ph:(07) 3821 1089.
