Wednesday Meetings, Weekends Away & Other Events
Other Forthcoming Events
If you have any suggestions or preferences for trips and events please let the committee know. We have the following planned so far:
Saturday 16th December
Our plan is the usual mix of fun, food and dancing, starting at 7:30pm at Chignal St James village hall (Mashbury Road, CM1 4TS). Please bring drinks and some food to share. We are planning a quiz and a photo caption competition, plus Dave's running a slide show of this year's activities. Please email Dave with any photo contributions and bring along any prints you have which are crying out for a witty caption.
To find it (grid ref TL665108, see map) take the A1060 (Rainsford Rd./Roxwell Rd.) out of Chelmsford; turn right at lights into Chignall Rd., after 1 mile turn left (Mashbury Rd) signposted Chignall St. James. Hall is on the left after almost 2 miles.
Wednesday 27th December 2017 to Monday 1st January 2018
Manorbier, Pembrokeshire Coast
A cliff-top hostel on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. Explore sandy beaches, rugged cliffs, natural arches and caves. Manorbier village, pub and castle are a mile away, and the medieval walled seaside town of Tenby is 5 miles. We have exclusive use of the 14-bed hostel annex for 5 nights.
Cost of accommodation will be about £20 per person per night (but you need to be prepared to pay for at least 4 nights), plus £6 per day for food. Deposit of £40 to reserve your place please.
Friday 26th to Sunday 28th January

Furnished with Moroccan goatskin lamps, Mexican wall tiles and Spanish floor tiles, and 200 year old stained glass in the upstairs loo, what more could you want!
