Return of passes

If any Friend stops participating in one of these groups/committees, he or she is asked to return the pass to the group convenor, who will return it to Admin at the ANBG. If for any reason such a pass is not handed back, it will be cancelled and no longer able to be used. In no circumstances should these passes be given to any other person.

Where to park

Holders of these passes will be asked to park in the three-hour parking areas that will be established.
