A COACH party of members and friends of the Barkwith and District Gardeners Association left East Barkwith for Lotherton Hall near Tadcaster, the venue for their recent outing on what was a lovely summer day and all enjoyed spending time exploring the gardens and deer park.
The exotic bird garden in particular was an added interest and the programme included a complete tour of the former stately home with the guide commenting on the history of the building and its valuable contents including beautiful paintings.
A cafe provided light refreshment for the visitors before they boarded the coach and made for Langlands Garden Centre for its late night opening where they had time for a look round and a meal of their choice from the menu before continuing the journey home. Thanks were expressed to Les Robinson once more for his efficient organisation and the next trip on his agenda is to Coventry and its city centre on Thursday October 18 where all will be free to explore, choosing how to spend their day.
There is what is claimed to be the biggest transport museum, the contrast between the ancient cathedral which was destroyed during the war and its modern replacement and of course, lots of shops to browse around and cafes for light refreshment when needed.
The journey home will include a stop at The Elite, the very popular fish and chip restaurant and the coach fare is just £10.
Les has his coach full at present but there is always the possibility that some passengers will not be able to make it and anyone interested in having their name on the waiting list can book and get further details by getting in touch with Les on 01673 857063.
