September 2018 Coach Trip

What a lovely day we had on our September coach trip, a visit to Hambleton's Bakery with a very informative tour of the bakery followed by a visit to the shop to buy some beautiful bread and cakes! Then into Oakham for lunch and a walk around the shops with a visit to the Castle Hall and its many horseshoes. Back to the coach and a ride around Rutland water before boarding The Rutland Belle for a lovely cruise which was very interesting and relaxing including refreshments. What a lovely way to spend a day. A big thank you to driver Brian of A & P Coaches who did a splendid job including some very tight manoeuvres! Why not join us for our next trip on October 10th to Cromford Mill Derbyshire. As usual pick up points are Billingborough, Pointon, Rippingale, Morton and Bourne. Members £16 non-members £19 for details and to book your seat please contact Audrey.

September 2018 Update

The Rippingale and District Friendship Club recently enjoyed an outing to Kings Lynn and Hunstanton. Kings Lynn provided retail therapy, a visit to the docks and fishing quay and anopportunity to take in refreshments before setting off for Hunstanton. At Hunstanton we started off with a stroll along the prom with some members taking the opportunity to paddle. Although various hostelries were frequented fish and chips seemed to be a favourite. The weather played a good part in making the trip a success along with the excellent services of A&P travel. As usual we held a raffle and the 1st prize was a lovely hamper which was generously donated by a friend of the club and was won by Jean, Congratulations! Thanks to all who helped organise and help on the day.
The next outing will be held on Wednesday 5th September - please note the change of date. We will be visiting Hambleton Bakery near Oakham, there will be some time in Oakham to browse the shops, visit the castle and take in refreshments before travelling on to Rutland water where an opportunity for a boat trip will be available. As always there are local pickups from Billingborough, Pointon, Rippingale, Morton and Bourne. £16 members £19 non-members. Please contact Audrey Brewin - details on the attached document.
