JOLLY DAYS OUT
Lincoln Christmas Market

84 hardy members set off on a bright but cold day for the largest Christmas market in the UK.

The market was very well organised and our two coaches dropped us off just a five minute walk from the heart of the bustling market.

Over 280 stalls selling a plethora of gifts,crafts and food lined the streets around the magnificent Cathedral, Castle and historic quarter of the city.

All of the local independent shops, restaurants, pubs and cafe's were open so our taste buds were not wanting !

Fortunately the weather was very kind to us and no umbrellas were required.

The "Jolly Days Out" team were pleased that no one got lost in the crowds and that we returned with 84 members.

Everyone received a £5 refund as the trip was well supported, a real bargain at £15.

Another " Jolly Days Out "

Norwich and Kirstead Hall Day Trip.

43 members visited Norwich for shopping, sightseeing and lunch before we left for our afternoon private tour of
Kirstead Hall.

Kirstead Hall is a fine, small, Grade 1 Elizabethan manor house circa 1570 situated about 25 minutes from Norwich.

We were met by the owners Dermot and Judy Murphy and given an introductory talk on the front lawn before being split into three groups for our tour.

Included in the tour was a visit to the Grade 1 listed Dovecote and to the antique restoration workshop where Dermot gave us a fascinating insight into the art of antique restoration.

Being grade 1 listed the interior of the house took us back to Elizabethan times without us having to use our imagination !

The tour was very informative yet informal and we were treated to afternoon tea, cakes and scones in the Hall and encouraged to wander around at will, sit in any the rooms and enjoy our afternoon tea.

A very interesting "Jolly Days Out "

OVER 900 SEATS HAVE BEEN SOLD ON OUR TRIPS THIS YEAR. THANKS TO ALL WHO HAVE SUPPORTED US THROUGHOUT THE YEAR.
