May Outing to Chester

25 of our members and guests enjoyed a beautiful sunny day on our annual May outing – this year we had a more local visit to Chester. We travelled by coach, where everyone was given a map of the centre and a short talk on different aspects of the history and layout of the city. We arrived at ‘the Groves’ in time to enjoy an ice-cream, a drink, or a short stroll before taking a trip on ‘Mark Twain’ which took us on a 2hr return trip along the river, passing many beautiful riverside dwellings and then through the Eaton estate.

We all walked up through the Roman Gardens, admiring the beautiful cherry blossom and past the amphitheatre to the Eastgate Clock where we had a couple of hours to do our own thing.

Some of our members took a leisurely stroll along the walls, stopping for a drink in the sun overlooking the Roodee racecourse. Others spent time walking around the shops and cafes. A very sociable and enjoyable day.
