SUNDAY 4TH JUNE 2017
This could also be called “Garden Centre Tour” as brunch and afternoon tea will be at two different ones in Leics/Rutland.
We will meet at Tesco, Ashby de la Zouch, and leave prompt at 10.15, the store opens at 10.00 so toilet facilities will be available. We will take a route across country and arrive at The Grange Garden Centre, Asfordby for 11.00. I have arranged a bacon or sausage cob and a tea or filter coffee at £5 per person (vegetarians can be catered for too). I will need to pre order your choices please.
About 12.00 we will set out on a drive for a couple of hours and arrive at Gates Garden Centre near Oakham. I have organised afternoon tea for us all here at 3pm (they could not fit us in earlier) so there will be time for shopping and wandering beforehand at this very large centre. The cost of afternoon tea is £19.95 for two, and they can do individual ones too.
I have spoken to each venue and discussed numbers of up to 30, but there is some flexibility. However I know that some of our members will be in Wales for the weekend, and I guess the holiday season will have started too.
So, over to you, would you like to join us?
Paul and Karen Wesson
I have copied this post from the old website, and have a note of some 20 or so names already, but anyone can now add comments to this post too – I hope! KW
