Summer Outing

without comments

We have decided to go on a trip on Saturday 20 August on the Kennet & Avon Canal.  This is a relaxing cruise through Devizes passing through neatly tended gardens before opening up towards the Vale of Pewsey turning just past Devizes Marina and the Hour Glass Public House.  It departs from the Wharf at 2.30pm returning at approximately 4.15pm.  Boarding starts 10 minutes before departure.  The cost is £6.  We would propose to have tea together afterwards.  We can meet at Swindon Bus Station.  The number 49 bus departs Swindon at 1.05pm which will take us to Devizes and return us there afterwards.  It should be a nice afternoon out together.

If you would like to come could you please inform Mrs Lewis at 6 Tenby Close, Lawn, Swindon SN3 1LN, telephone 01793 532995.

Best wishes
