Outings and Excursions

We usually have two outings each year - one in the Summer and another at Christmas.

This year's Summer's trip was to LUNE VALLEY AQUEDUCT.

Despite last minute technical problems with the barge which meant that our planned cruise could not include the promised fish and chips, everyone agreed that it was an excellent day out.  A visit to Salmesbury Hall was added to the itinerary, then we went to Barton Grange Garden Centre where we enjoyed our fish and chip lunch and a browse. Then on to Lancaster, where we boarded the Kingfisher along the Lune Valley Aqueduct for a lovely long cruise, enjoying the wildlife and scenery.

Last year (2018) our Summer trip was to Skipton and included a cruise along the canal with tea and biscuits.  It was a lovely day strolling amongst the market stalls and exploring the castle, followed by fish and chips at Bizzie Lizzie's.

Our Christmas outing was to a hotel in Chester for a Broadway Shows themed event, including a full Christmas dinner, craft and novelty stalls, mince pies and entertainment.  There were prizes awarded for the best costumes for those who chose to dress up.
