Change of Plan
9th September – by popular demand, a picnic at La Sauvetat sur Lede
Although we had considered a visit to Chateau Milandes, it became clear that a more relaxed event was desirable with the cost of entry, travel and amount of walking involved. We had been asked many times by people who enjoyed the picnic in June last year to hold another one while the weather allows. So we agreed, and It will be on the same basis as the last time: bring your food, drink and plates/cutlery—members, guests, male and female. If you would like more than one guest to attend, let us know, and if the number of attendees allows (priority given to members), we will endeavour to accommodate you. Patricia Richardson has kindly agreed to be the host again.
