18/07/23 National Memorial Arboretum

Our summer outing this year was to the National Memorial Arboretum. A great day out, thanks to Morag who organised a full schedule which included periods for own choice activities; during one of which some of our hardier members made a dash through the drizzle to the Soroptimist’s Memorial.

An early start, we arrived in time for a welcome introduction before coffee and biscuits, attended the daily memorial service, toured the Arboretum on the land train, ate a delicious lunch and still had time for the galleries and shop before the journey home.

Thanks again to Morag – great work, and to Daphne for managing the day.
