Dear Members

This month we are off to Brooklands and hopefully the weather will be kind to us. I hope that those who want to go on the Concorde Tour have informed Geoff so that he can let Brooklands know. Our outing for November/December is to the Christmas Market in Canterbury and the application form is in this month’s Journal. You will find all the information on the application form.

There will be no outing in January but February will be a trip to Brick Lane.

Last month our outing to Thanet started badly with rain but when we reached Thanet we had warm sunshine and they had not had rain for ages. Everyone enjoyed the variety of venues that we visited and found the Walpole Hotel a fascinating and unusual hotel that took some of us back to the past with their museum collection.

Do come and join us on future trips.

Wallonia – all the single rooms are now taken and only twin/doubles are left, so join up with a friend and come along and enjoy the holiday.

There are still some places available for our trip to Brooklands Museum on Thursday 27 October which we would like to fill. If you would like to join us, the order form is repeated in this Journal and the entry closing date has been extended accordingly.
