West Lothian 50+ Network – Holidays

We aim to organize three short holidays each year, with an emphasis on affordability and popular appeal.

In addition, some groups may organize holidays which are opened to the wider membership if places are available.

Our holiday choices are informed by a recent survey of our membership
