Thurs 9th July – We will be going to the Grimsdyke Hotel in Harrow Weald. The outing includes a 2 course lunch, a tour of, and a talk on, the History of Grimsdyke. Many of you will know that this is where W S Gilbert drowned in the lake. After the talk and tour there will be the option to enjoy tea or coffee (additional £3 per person) either in the Library, or if a nice day, outside on the terrace in the beautiful gardens. Lunch will be served inside at 1pm and, nearer the time I will be sending you the menu choices which I will need to have back at least 2 weeks before the trip. There will NOT be a coach for this outing, it is sufficiently nearby for you to make your own way. Please note that there is NO wheelchair access and people with mobility issues should be aware that there are various steps on this tour. The cost per person is £30.

Weds 19th August - We will be going to Frogmore Mill at Apsley by coach. It is a full day with tea and coffee on arrival, a presentation with the history of the Mill (former home of John Dickinson paper). There is a tour which includes a go at Paper Making, a Vegetarian Deli lunch, and a 25 minute boat trip. The total cost for this tour is £30 per person. We will break up into small groups for the Tour and Canal Trip but all have lunch together.
