This year our annual Grand Day Out takes place on Tuesday 17th July. It promises to be a great day with visits to two classic Cotswold Gardens with lunch sandwiched in between. In the morning we visit Cerney House Gardens near Cheltenham before moving on to Abbey House Gardens in Malmesbury after lunch.
Cost: £25.00 (or with lunch, £32.95) includes coach travel and all garden entries.
Tickets are available from Tim Beaumont at any of our monthly meetings.
