Booking systemWeeks are selected on a rota basis (where below is based on a 12th share).

Each member chooses 2 peak and 1 off-peak week in turn
according to the rota. At the end of this round of selection,
the order is reversed for selecting the 4th week.

Each year, members are moved 5 places around (imagine a clock face).

The process usually starts in July and is generally completed by
October for the following calendar year
Priority for school holidaysTwo shares can get priority for school holiday weeks,
paying a premium of 10% ON THE RUNNING COSTS
for this over the normal annual costs.
