5-day coach trip centred on Oswestry with planned visits to Shrewsbury, Welshpool & Llanfair Light Railway, a canal journey on the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, Powys Castle and Chirk Castle.

Friday 30th August 2019 Golf Day

Chalfont St.Giles.  Four ball followed by lunch and prize giving.
Non-golfers are very welcome to join us for lunch.

12th September 2019 Coach Trip to Slimbridge 
Change of plan – in place of the visit to Bath, we will now be organising a trip to see Peter Scott’s newly reopened house and his paintings at the Wildfowl & Wetland Trust’s Slimbridge Reserve, which he founded after the Second World War. In addition to viewing the house and his art, there will be the opportunity of exploring the Wetlands Centre and to see wildlife close up!
Cost will depend on numbers, but approximately £35 each

25th October  – Skittles Evening
at Oakland Park Golf Club – arrive at 6.30 for a 7pm start. The teams will be randomly selected by drawing a number out of a hat. Thus not all the ‘professional’ skittlers in the same team! A one-course buffet meal will be served at about 8.15, including coffee and mints. Hope to finish including prizes between 10-10.30

Sunday 8th December 2019 Christmas Drinks
Kindly hosted by Colin & Di Thomas in Gerrards Cross
