PAST EVENTS:

Cadbury World March 2022

A day that nearly didn’t happen due to strong winds.  But my intrepid travellers decided to brave the storm.   It was worth it as  what a lot of chocolate we all ate, followed by a little cream tea.  And Who could forget the shaking benches!!!  The ride in the little cars to see the singing cocoa beans was the highlight for me.   Loved every minute.  Thank you Beryl for the photo of the sexy  Caramel bunny.

RHS MALVERN SHOW 8TH MAY 2022

What a glorious day despite the drizzly start.  The sun hats and sunglasses were a must as the day progressed and the sunshine emerged from behind the clouds.  So much to see from plants and flowers, to garden statues and structures, tools, garden pods, antiques, clothes, hats, paintings etc.  Too much stuff to mention all of it.  Plenty of food and drinks on offer from fish and chips, cakes, greek souvalki, pasties, burgers, etc.  Plenty of seating all round the grounds.  Definitely be doing this trip again next year.  

Worth noting for those with less mobility there were scooters available for hire at the show grounds.

ROYAL MINT AND HENSOL CASTLE GIN DISTILLERY 17TH MAY 2022

What a full day this was.  The mint was really fascinating. Quite amazing that they make coins for several other countries as well as for the whole of the UK.  What can i say about the very handsome guide at Hensol Castle who was very generous with the free gin!!

 

What a fabulous day.  Intrepid travellers as ever you were a joy to spend the day with and I think we certainly got value for money.

LLANGOLLEN NARROW BOAT TRIP JULY 2022

Fabulous trip  but where some decided to ignore the 38 meter drop with the help of a Jack Daniels or 2!! others chose to hide so as not to see the cavernous ground below.  Well done Lina and Hilary and thanks for the photos.

VALE OF EVESHAM PLUM TRIP AUGUST 2022

Well this turned out to be a very hot day.  Almost too hot to pick the beautiful plums off the tree.  But all who went managed to bring back punnets of lovely golden and red plums. 

We also had time to do some shopping in the Vale of Evesham shopping centre.  Very nice. 

NATIONAL SPACE CENTRE LEICESTER SEPTEMBER 2022

A fabulous trip and one I think everyone would do again.  The Space Centre was incredible.  Full of interesting information about space travel and the planets.  It also featured many artefacts from actual space missions. 

The Planetarium show was absolutely spectacular and  awesome!!!  Look at the smiling faces of Linda and Margo.  Who had a good time girls!!
