Hosted by tour leaders Sue Reece, Malcolm Mogford  and Peter BrightSC06-18.jpg (14445 bytes) (above), with tea in the village hall  organised by Liz Hamblin and Jo Atkinson (right)), forty-five Senior Citizens enjoyed their day out in very reasonable weather.

 

The destination, as always, was a mystery, but turned out to be a wonderful trip on the West Somerset Railway steam train from Bishops Lydeard to Minehead.

 

On arrival at Minehead, most people treated themselves to an ice cream before being picked up by the coach which then took us all on to the Castle of Comfort Country House Hotel near Nether Stowey for a delicious cream tea. We had seconds too!

 

Malcolm kept us entertained along the way with useful snippets of local information and then set us a quiz to make sure we had been listening - Mary Carlisle was the winner.

 

On returning to Westbury we had a tasty supper and raffle in the village hall, prepared by members of the Committee. A vote of thanks to the organisers was given by Ken Banwell. 

“A grand day out” as Wallace and Gromit would say.

Report and photography by Tony Hamblin, to whom many thanks.
