…AND NEXT WEEKEND VENUE – WINCHESTER

THE ancient and royal city of Winchester, is the venue for the next Farm Womens Club weekend away, Fri, Feb 21 to Sun, Feb 23, 1997.

This Hampshire town was the heart of Alfred the Greats kingdom of Wessex and is famed for its magnificent cathedral where Mary Tudor wasmarried and Jane Austen buried.

"There are not many finer spots in England," wrote William Cobbett in 1830 and that is still true today.

Accommodation has been booked at the comfortable Royal Hotel in the heart of the city. The programme begins with a friendly, informal gathering before dinner on Friday night which will give you a chance to meet old friends and make some new ones over a glass of mulled wine.

We have arranged a guided walking tour of the city for Saturday morning but the afternoon is free for you to explore the medieval streets, museums and shops which, hopefully, will not leave you too tired for dancing that night.

After a leisurely Sunday morning breakfast you may care to stroll over to the cathedral for morning service or join a treasure hunt in this lovely city. And what could be better on a February day than to enjoy a traditional roast dinner at the hotel before going home?

Make sure you book as soon as you read this as numbers are limited and it would be a shame to miss such a good weekend!

The cost is £115 a person for two nights dinner, bed and breakfast, Saturday guided walking tour and dancing that evening, and lunch on Sunday.
