Weekends 2018

Spring Weekend - Cornwall Country Link

We have returned from another fun filled weekend with our friends from all over the country.

The team from Derbyshire deserve a very big thank you for organising a super event.

The party night on Friday was a blast and the fancy dress was hysterical.

The trips were well received and we personally went to Spurn Point and the secret bunker at a nearby ex RAF Station that tracked potential nuclear attacks.

The peace and the wild beauty out on Spurn Point was a tonic.

The Sunday trips were very interesting and we particularly enjoyed going on the deep sea trawler that was a combatant in the Cod Wars back in the 1980's.

Looking forward to our next Country Link Weekend.

Mad March Weekend 2018

image001.jpgAfter all the snow, it's time for fun and the seaside. 20 off us were off to Bridlington, some left on the Tuesday, some on the Thursday, we all met on the Friday night in the bar of the Expanse hotel, our home until Monday morning.   

After a lovely meal we all stayed in the hotel bar chatting until bedtime.

Breakfast was great - cereals, fruit, yogurt, full English, kedgeree, smoked haddock - the options were endless.  Staff were wonderful, even went shopping for the connect 4!! later.

image002.jpgOur first outing was to Sewaby Hall and gardens on the opening day of the season.  Lovely relaxed day learning about Amy Johnson, incredible lady, then home via the road train for earlier dinner before our night at the theatre.

After dinner, taxi to the spa to see 'Think Floyd', well 20 of went in, 12 stayed until the encore, and still no 'Brick in the Wall'! Once back at the hotel, after cheese and biscuits, to the Marina bar for dancing. Yes Brick in the Wall played and we danced until no more music, off to bed.

 

Breakfast wonderful and off in cars to Bempton Cliffs for a guided walk with Kevin,fascinating information about the sea birds,and we saw the first puffins of the year.

Lovely company, trips, hotel and the sunshine just put the icing on the weekend.
Well done Bridlington!
