In 2017 we had successful trips to a Synagogue, a Buddhist monastery, Norton Priory, Jodrell Bank, the Hydro Electric mountain, the RAF museum and the famous laburnum arch in Bodnant Gardens. Our final trip was a fun day at the Dickensian Festival Ulverston, round­ing off with an evening meal on the homeward journey.

We are taking a break now until the lighter days of March. Please check this group page around that time for information on our first trip of 2018.
