We were lucky with the weather on the day of our autumn outing this year, and we set off just before eleven in the brightness of an October morning. Our driver, Jason, took us off towards Avebury, via Devizes and Beckhampton and then on along the Swindon road. We passed the Wootton Bassett turn off and then a bit further along we turned left to wander through the side roads, eventually coming to Lyneham via Dauntsey Banks. The countryside looked beautiful with quite a lot of autumn colour showing. From Lyneham we took the road through to Chippenham, arriving at the Brewers Fayre, Cepen Park for lunch. As this is a Premier Inn like the Frome Flyer where we have had good meals, we were hopeful that a delicious lunch awaited us. We were not disappointed, and thirty six of us tucked into the meal of our choice.
Being a modern building the facilities and access are very helpful, and we were seated in the spacious sun room which we had all to ourselves. In order to time our arrival home to meet those drivers not with us, Jason brought us back through Lyneham again, judging his timing to perfection. A grand day out.
A couple of weeks later Jan from Affordable Clothing visited us with her selection of dresses, cardigans etc., and then when everyone had made their purchases we celebrated Ella’s 90th birthday with a lovely iced cake given by her family.
We have recently received a generous cheque for £100 from the Bromham Carnival Committee, and we are very grateful for their continuing loyal support of the club.
Sadly our long standing relationship with Doreen Stroud has come to an end. Doreen’s health does not allow her to continue with her sales of cards for the Bath cancer unit, but she did kindly pass on some of her stock for our future purchases.
