Join us to plan our trips for late summer and events for May & June. Everybody welcome.

Wednesday 18th February



Do you fancy a game of badminton to get the circulation going and chase out this winter weather? The plan is to book a court at Dovedale Sports Centre, so please let Trudi know about a week in advance. (Dovedale in Vicarage Road, Chelmsford, close to Moulsham Street)

Alps Slides

Dave P

Back in July a group of us took up Brigitte’s invitation to visit her family’s holiday chalet in a quiet corner of the French Alps. See stunning scenery and hear tales of long walks and death-defying climbs.
