Thirty hardy souls turned up for our coach trip to
the Thriplow Daffodil Festival on a bitterly cold 18th March. No
daffs, but we made the most of the day – we did beat an early retreat at 4pm
instead of 5 (as did most of the stallholders!)
trip to the Ely Cathedral Flower Festival on Sunday 24th June is
almost full (we had two seats left at the last count). The price is £22 per
person which includes coach and entry to the festival. Deposits for this trip
are now due.
Do not forget to come along to our stall at the
Chadwell Heath History Fair – details below.
