Spring Opener 2019
When: 14th April
Michael Scott is planning this event. We will meet at The Greyhound at Besselsleigh, near Abingdon, Oxfordshire, OX13 5PX for coffee and optional elevenses. A 15-mile drive will take us to The Lamb in Buckland, near Faringdon, SN7 8QN, for our lunch stop.
As the lunch venue is small, we will need to pre-order.
August Pub Meet

David and Erica have kindly arranged for us to meet at The Bull, Stanford Dingley, Reading, RG7 6LS, for coffee and lunch and have invited us to Two Hoots afterwards for tea and cakes. David needs to know if you will be attending the day, and also requires your meal choices (Click here for the menu), by 06 August at the very latest. He can be contacted by phone on 01189 712148 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope that you will be present at this always enjoyable event.
June Run 2019
When: 7th -1oth June
Where: Tolpuddle, Dorset
We will be exploring Dorset while we stay at the Springfield Country Hotel just outside Wareham. On Friday, after getting together at St Peters Finger pub and enjoying lunch, we will
visit Clouds Hill (the rural retreat of DH Lawrence) before checking in at the hotel where we can take advantage of the indoor swimming pool.
Saturday’s drive will take us to Poundbury (Prince Charles’ village) for coffee and cakes before we move on to The Martyrs Inn in Tolpuddle for lunch. While there, there is the opportunity to visit the Martyrs’ Museum. The Tank Museum at Bovington is our final venue before returning to the hotel.
After we have recovered from the Gala Dinner the previous evening, Sunday is more relaxed, with a visit to Hardy’s Cottage and Athelhampton House.
We would love you to join us! An application form will be enclosed in the December 2018 Newsletter, which will need to be completed and sent to Pam Walton, together with a deposit cheque (payable to The Springfield Hotel) by 18 January 2019.
