Both of these will be unaccompanied trips (neither Andy nor Philippa will be present). Anyone who goes will need to be able to make their own way to and from the venue and be independent whilst there. If you would like to go and feel that you would manage, please put your name forward. Should either trip be oversubscribed then names will be picked at random out of a hat.

 Penshurst  House and gardens, Wednesday 8th May. We will visit this beautiful 14th century house and gardens in Kent.
