It will soon be time to go on our trip to the Botanical Gardens in Birmingham (Sept 21st) and the payment balance is due. Cheques prefered, made out to Ashby U3A and write on the back Botanical Gardens.
There is a change to the coach pick up point and time, it is now Ivanhoe school. The coach will be in the pick up bay through double gates, at 10.30am.
Thank you Paul
Our self drive trip was brilliant, we visited two venues and all those present thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We were very lucky with the weather because it rained heavily first thing but by the time we started out it had dried up. The first venue was Meynall Langley Trials Garden, Kirk Langley, Nr. Ashbourne, we had a guided tour and the plant specimens were inspirational. There was a very nice café too.
The second venue was Burrows Gardens about 5 minutes drive away. This was a peaceful very beautiful garden that forms the grounds of a lovely country house. Again, refreshments were available with some superb cakes available before our drive home.
