A new year and a new programme of coach outings is about to be launched by Les Robinson, trips organiser for Barkwith and District Gardeners Association, with the first to Colton Manor next week.
Les first volunteered some years ago to arrange an annual outing for the group when the former organiser cancelled the planned trip as there were insufficient interest.
Since then he has gained a reputation for making sure the visits are interesting, provide variety and almost always a stop for a quality meal.
Club members have priority for seats but they are also in demand from friends over a wide area, on a ‘first to get your name down’ basis.
Each year the programme expands and included this year is a five day trip to Kent and a four day trip to Hampton Court in addition to the overnight stay at the Whately Hall Hotel for the Christmas festivities trip to Blenheim Palace.
