Thanks to a generous benefactor, a coachload of members, volunteers and staff from Elizabeth House went to Waterperry Gardens for lunch and a wander around the gardens.
We arrived, had a quick coffee and then visited the onsite museum full of old brewery memorabilia, farming and village life – with a few surprises! Who knew that sheep and goats could have little welly boots for their feet?
Returning to café, we enjoyed an amazing roast chicken dinner, apple pie and cream and tea or coffee, then spent time shopping, visiting to the old church to see the stained glass windows or walking in the grounds. There is so much to see at Waterperry Gardens that members have asked to come back for a longer visit later in the year.
Next outing (proposed dated Wednesday 18 July) to Buckinghamshire Railway Centre near Aylesbury where we are hoping to ride on a steam train! Please speak to Miriam for more information.
