Once your talk has been confirmed you will be asked to provide a £15.00 non-refundable booking fee to Devon Wildlife Trust (DWT). Please make cheques payable to ‘Devon Wildlife Trust’ or call 01392 279244 to make a card payment by phone.

We will acknowledge receipt of your form and fee. DWT will make every effort to fulfil your request, but if the relevant guide or speaker is not available we will ask you to make an alternative choice. If a speaker/guide is not available or a talk gets cancelled by DWT last minute, DWT will return the booking fee.

Bookings must be made by a named individual. The minimum advance booking is 21 days in advance, and the maximum is 12 months.

After the event you will be invoiced for the remaining balance due, including the speaker’s expenses (charged at 40p per mile).

Cancellation

If a minimum of seven days’ notice of cancellation is given, you will not be charged for the walk/talk service, however the booking fee will not be refunded. Following that period, in the event of cancellation by either you or DWT due to bad weather, illness, safety reasons or other unavoidable circumstances, only the £15 non-refundable booking fee will be required. However, where possible another date will be arranged.
