Racing at Kempton Park: Monday 4 November 2019

Our annual visit to enjoy racing from our glass fronted restaurant-view of the course, overlooking the winning post. After a glass of bubbly we can choose from the very good menu; our two courses being chosen from a starter, main or dessert. We have a TV on our tables where we can not only watch the racing but check the betting odds. It’s not compulsory to bet but does add to the fun! You can watch the horses from the balcony as they parade both before and after the race. Never been? Then do come and join us for this very good day out.

Price: £50 plus coach when final numbers are known.
Leaving times: Library 11am and onwards at the usual stops towards the Wodson bus stop. Just say where you want to join us

Loseley Park: Christmas Lunch Tuesday 17 December 2019

We arrive to enjoy coffee/tea served with Christmas spiced flapjack.

Would you like to go to view the ground floor of the House decorated for Christmas then have a two course Christmas lunch of Traditional Turkey served with all the trimmings and followed by Loseley Trifle, layers of cream, custard with vanilla sponge steeped in Kirsch all topped with seasonal poached fruit.

You might prefer the Christmas pud though. It can only be one or the other, so let me know your choice and winner it will be!
