News about organised trips to National Trust properties for both National Trust and non-National Trust members

National Trust Group

Sue and myself are presently planning the details for our first two visits for March and April. We are planning to visit Fountains Abbey in late March and Nostell Priory in April. Both sites have much to see and the first venue is actually a World Heritage site.

Full details will be available at the January members’ meeting and on the website in early January. Bookings will be taken at the February and March meetings.

If you have any particular places that you would like to visit with the group or any general suggestions please let me know via the form below.

We look forward to visiting some interesting sites over the year.

Best Wishes
Sue and Barrie Saunders

National Trust

Members will be aware that, after many years organising the National Trust Group, Sue Spolton has decided to step down and enjoy a well deserved rest.

This has been such a popular group that I did not want to see it fold so I will take over the group, along with my wife Sue.

We will have our first visit in March, details of which will be on the website and in the January Newsletter.

Places on National Trust October Trip

There are still places left on the National Trust trip to Charlecote Park, near Warwick on Tuesday, 15 October. The cost of the fare is £10.00. If you aren’t in the National Trust you are welcome to join us but there will be an additional entrance charge of £13.40. We will be leaving the Hucknall Leisure Centre at 9.00am.

Charlecote is a beautiful riverside property and the parkland walk will be looking wonderful with the autumn foliage. Take advantage of this penultimate trip which promises to be a fabulous day out. Book your place either by phone, through the website or at the October monthly meeting.

Good News!
Those people inconvenienced on the last trip will receive a £2.00 refund each courtesy of Butlers Coaches. Ideally this can be taken off the cost of a further trip to save an administrative ‘headache’.

The final two trips are to Charlecote Park, Nr Warwick on Tuesday, 15 October and to Hardwick Hall on 29 November for their brand new Hardwick at Christmas display. I will be taking bookings for Charlecote Park and for the remaining places for Canons Ashby at the August meeting. The cost of the Charlecote Park transport is £10.00.
