The Evergreens – September 13

Our trip to Althorp on the 15th July was a truly wonderful experience and must ahve been the best tip we have had for quite a time. Several members comments were “how do we top that?” Our driver was very good, avoiding all the heavy traffic on the way home. All in a great day out! On a more sad note we lost one of our very dear Evergreens –…

Our May outing was a trip on the river Thames and as the weather had been awful up to this point we set off with some trepidation on the morning of the 20th. However, our fears were unfounded and we arrived in Windsor in sunny weather. Having been told by the driver that the Changing of the Guard was due to take place, most of us set off for Windsor…

On the 15th April, thirty of us set off for a short holiday to Weston-super-Mare. Whilst there we also visited the twin towns of Lynton and Lynmouth where there were such awful floods in the 1950’s. Another day saw us in the beautiful city of Bath, where we spent some time in the old Roman Baths, the magnificent Abbey and viewed some of the lovely Georgian Terraces. We arrived home…

On March 18th we had a fish and chip lunch, which was enjoyed by many of us, followed by a slide show, presented by MickMansbridge. This took us down memory lane, as most of the slides were of our outings. We then had a slide quiz given by Mich Cope, which consisted of shots of places Visited by The Evergreens; its surprising how quickly we forget and no one had…

The year started off well with our New Year Lunch at the Reigate Manor hotel which was rather special for us as we celebrated our Twenty One years, and to join us in our celebrations was our first leader, Freda Nelson. We hope that the Evergreens carry on for another 21 years. We are now looking forward to the coming year with more outings and holidays and various activities. If…

On Monday, 20th august, we took a trip to the Cotswolds – Bourton-on-the-Water to be precise, and what wonderful weather we had. The journey was really great, with all that wonderful scenery enhanced by the sunshine. We arrived in time for lunch and, as there are so many eateries there, we were spoiled for choice. Having eaten, it was time to hit the sops (for some of us at least_…

Our trip to the National Memorial Arboretum was cancelled due to lack of support and instead we went to Longleat. What a wonderful day it turned out to be. The sun shone and all the animals were out, really enjoying the sunshine. After a lovely lunch some of us went around the beautiful house, whilst others chose to go on a boat trip – altogether a really lovely day! On…
