The Social Group meets on alternate Tuesdays and Wednesdays in the Golden Bowler from 6pm in the main bar.
A couple of hours chilling and chatting - a great way to meet other members.
The group has been running for 3 years now and we have enjoyed some wonderful get-togethers.
Regrettable the waiting list for this group is now closed. I know there people who wish to join but the Group Co-ordinator , Sue Ponting or Maggie Morter will be happy to help any one or two members who wish to start a similar group.
VISIT TO LEEDS CASTLE
Thought we'd have a bit of culture and it's somewhere I've always wanted to go! (Well there's got to be some perks!)
I've provisionally booked a group visit to Leeds Castle in Kent on TUESDAY 17 SEPTEMBER. The flower festival is on at that time as well so there are lots of demonstrations and talks on during the day. There are beautiful grounds around the Castle. I have spoken at length to a very helpful member of staff there. She said there is always a long queue to get in - around one hour. What she suggested was that we booked a guided tour which takes one hour, which means we get to go in early and then we avoid the queues. So an interesting guided tour and no queuing. The total cost for the visit including a guided tour which is an additional £4 and Lucketts coach picking up in the village will be approx £38. (Early pick up!) Lucketts are holding for 7 days only. If you are interested please let me know asap. I am off to Spain on Saturday so ideally by the end of this week.
BOMBAY SAPPHIRE DISTILLERY - WEDNESDAY 31ST JULY
I have provisionally booked a tour of the Distillery (by popular request!) for 31 July @1pm. If there is sufficient interest, maybe we can call into the Silk Mill in the morning and then stop for some late lunch on the way home. Please let me know if you are interested in going to the Distillery. The cost is £14.40 and depending on numbers I will organise a mini bus. Please let me know by 15 APRIL.
CAN I PLEASE MENTION THAT ALTHOUGH THE MAJORITY OF MEMBERS WHO SAY THEY WANT TO GO TO THE EVENTS I ORGANISE, DO ACTUALLY COME ALONG AND THANK YOU FOR THAT - THERE ARE A SMALL MINORITY WHO AT THE LAST MINUTE SAY THEY DON'T THINK THEY CAN NOW MAKE IT AND OFTEN I HAVE ALREADY PAID FOR TICKETS ETC. SO PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU 100% WANT TO JOIN IN. IF YOU SAY YOU WANT TO GO - YOU WILL NOW STILL HAVE TO PAY EVEN IF YOU LATER CHANGE YOUR MIND. MANY THANKS.
CAN I ALSO PLEASE ASK THAT YOU RESPOND TO MY EMAILS - EVEN IF TO SAY NO THANK YOU - THAT WAY I KNOW THAT AT LEAST YOU HAVE RECEIVED IT - AND AS IT TAKES A LOT OF TIME FOR ME TO ORGANISE THESE EVENTS IT IS ONLY COURTEOUS THAT YOU TAKE A FEW MINUTES TO REPLY.
