July – Rousham House visit

Our trip to Rousham is coming up on July 18th and the list for signing is already on the board in the library. There are still some places left, but not all that many, so if you would like to come please sign up as soon as possible.

We aim to leave for Rousham at 9.30 on the 18th July from the bus station but may be able to do a pick up from Woodchester if people would like. Cost is £9 for the coach, £10 to visit the house (guided tour by owner) and garden and £5 to visit just the garden. There is no shop or cafe so you will need to bring a packed lunch to eat in the grounds.

As Burford garden centre won’t let us take a coach there we are now going to stop on the homeward journey in Bourton On The Water for about an hour to give people time to see round the model village if they would like and have a cup of tea, getting back to Nailsworth about 5.30pm.

If you are coming to the June 6th talk could you please bring your payment for the trip then.
