Toilets at Wheal Breage.  All welcome, Free for RGSC members, £5 for non RGSC members (please bring £5 in a sealed, labelled envelope). Please share cars if you know other people attending.

It would be helpful if you could give an indication of attendance to Beatrice Kerno, and copy in so we can gauge numbers.
