Annual Dinner - Wed 14th November 2018

Annual Dinner - November 2017
We held the annual dinner at Sensi Italian Restaurant in Eastcote. This was a return visit as we had a super evening there in 2016. They closed the restaurant to other diners so we were able to sit in a horse shoe shape. Once again, the food was excellent.
We have held an annual dinner in local restaurants every autumn since 2000. This is an informal gathering and is open to members and their guests.
see the History page for reports and pictures for more annual dinners.
Coach Trip 2019
Our first trip for 2019 took place on 27 April and was to a new destination, The Savill Garden. Created in the 1930s, and constantly evolving, there are 35 acres of beautifully designed gardens and woodland. It was a blustery day which seemed to keep the crowds away, and we were the only coach in the park. We enjoyed the Garden and our group also took shelter in The Savill Garden Kitchen restaurant and the Cafe. With floor to ceiling windows you sit with a cuppa whilst looking out at the Garden.
The Savill Garden Gift Shop and plant selection was also visited by some of the group. I saw a beautiful climbing rose come back on the coach with us.
As part of Windsor Great Park the energetic ones in the party were able to stretch their legs on walks around Virginia Water, the Valley Garden, had refreshments in the Village Store garden, took in the views of Windsor Castle from the Copper Horse and had any cobwebs blown away.
Some of us were a little sleepy on the return journey to Eastcote.
Coach Trip 2018
On 12 May we set off on our first coach trip of the year. Our trip was to RHS Hyde Hall, the largest of the RHS gardens and is near Chelmsford in Essex. There were 40 members with family and friends and one young lady under three years old. It has been four years since our last visit to Hyde Hall and a lot has changed. There is a new Winter Garden, a Global Growth Vegetable Garden with a new glass house in its centre, Big Sky Meadows, with wildflowers in good colour at this time of year. Hyde Hall is known for spotting hares and we were lucky enough to see one amongst the wildflowers. Some of our members used the new restaurant facility, which is well located with views across the gardens.
