This Group started in 2016 and is for anyone on their own who would like to go out and about with others. We meet up once a month on a Saturday afternoon to discuss what we would like to do in the coming months. At the moment there are about 17 in the group but it only takes two people to make an outing. This was proved when a new member came to a meeting and the next thing was going on a coach trip with another member. They had a successful day out in Canterbury and other members have done some local trips by car to Hyde Hall, Moverons, Alresford Farmers and Craft Market and are going for Afternoon Tea at Prested Hall shortly.
Last year we went to Heybridge Basin, Sudbury Theatre, Snape Maltings, to see The Snow Queen, The Mercury to The Abba Tribute, The Royal Albert Hall to the Jingle Bell Concert, and a trip to Kew Gardens.
This year we have three members who are going to Northumberland on a coach trip in July and four of us are going to Beamish, Whitby and the North York Moors Railway in May. We hope to repeat Kew gardens, Snape Maltings and Heybridge and if the weather is better we will go on the river. We also have plans to maybe have a cottage break, maybe in Norfolk/Suffolk in September, and various days out to Bletchley, Narrow Boat Cruise, Medieval night, London day out to go on Cable Car, Canary Wharf and River Cruise. Some members have already booked to go to Warners in Somerset in October 2018.
I hope this gives anyone thinking of joining our group, an idea of what is possible. We meet on a Saturday afternoon once a month. If you would like to join or get further details, please use the Bluebird contact button at the side of the page to send a message to the Group Leader.
