NEWS & FUTURE EVENTS
OUR NEXT MEETING: A WOODLAND PICNIC
All members are invited, with their families, to enjoy a summer picnic in beautiful surroundings on Sunday, 10 July.
*UPFATE - NEW TIME*
Picnic Brunch at the earlier time of 10am - 12 noon.
Tennis fans have probably already spotted that the original time of our joint picnic with the Parish Grassland Society (3pm) is the time when you will be glued to the Men’s Final! We really want as many members a possible to get together for what will be a lovely social occasion. So we have moved the event to the morning. Otherwise, arrangements remain the same.
Bring your own picnic and chair - tea/coffee provided
There will be an opportunity to explore the wood, including the landmark avenue of Wellingtonia or giant Sequoia trees which once led to Harthill Grange, a large Victorian house demolished in the 1950s. There are still vestiges of the gardens with their layout of paths and stone steps, but over the last 70 years nature has largely taken over.
OR just relax in a magical spot and enjoy the good company from the comfort of your chair
Getting there: Arrive on foot if possible
Arriving by car: reserved parking for 9 cars, and 10 min walk across fields to the wood. OR Limited derry service from Brockweir and St Briavels to the wood gate and a short walk to the picnic site.
More information and directions has been emailed to members
This event is held jointly with the Parish Grasslands Project
