Malvern Hills

Dear WMNT Centre Member-

I think that a suitable slogan for Summer this year would be "Carpe Diem"! With such varied weather we really do have to make the best of whatever opportunities present themselves. This was certainly very true last Thursday. The perfect setting for our Cream Tea on the Aldwyn Terrace was matched by a cloudless blue sky. Delightful music by Suzie and Helen of the Celebration Duo was greatly appreciated by the 60 persons fortunate to be there ( maximum capacity). England at its very best. 

Good weather seems to be on our side this year. Our coach trip to Duffryn Gardens was wonderfully sunny and we have had good feedback of this visit.

Whilst on trips, Hazel Cartledge has problems with her internet connections and normal media efficiency. Hazel is leading our next trip, on 3rd July to The Bishops Palace and Gardens, Wells. If anyone going on that trip needs to contact Hazel could you please ring me on 07970 260007 and I will ensure that Hazel gets your message or query.  

Tony reports that the Coughton Court trip on the 16th July is filling well, however there are still a few places available. Please ring him on 01684 893907 to join us for another great day out.

The Holiday Trips organised by Clive Hooper are very popular and form an integral part of the Centre`s events throughout the year. Please visit our website, www.worcestermalvernntcentre.org.uk for full details. It is also very worthwhile to read Elizabeth Dunnett`s report on the past two trips (Holiday to Cumbria and The Lake District/The Delights of Devon)  where you will gain a first-hand insight on just how much is packed into each trip and also how much enjoyment there is to be had.
Clive reports that there are still places available (singles, doubles and twins) for the Loire Holiday. Clive has also secured 5 more single rooms at the same supplement as advertised in the brochure for the Surrey, Sussex and London holiday, (one of which has already been taken). There are also 3 twins/doubles left for this trip.

PLEASE NOTE THAT OUR NEXT NEWSLETTER WILL BE POSTED OUT EARLY IN SEPTEMBER AND WILL INCORPORATE ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL (OCTOBER) FORMS

Dear WMNT Centre Member-

 The year continues to fly by. Has anyone told the Weather Fairy that it is time for some lovely warm times?

Felicity and myself have just returned from a wonderful 2 weeks in the Loire, France. What a treat is in store for members who have booked on Clive`s trip next May. Clive says that there are still plenty of spaces for this trip, but it is sure to fill up soon. The Loire area, with its wonderful Chateaux, Wine Growers, Troglodyte caves and scenery should not be missed.
Clive also tells me that he still has two single and five twin/double spaces for next years Sussex, Surrey & London trip. Further details and booking forms are on our website. These trips are hugely popular - please don`t delay, book today!

Tony reports that there are also still a few places for Coughton Court trip on July 16th - to book a place please ring 01684 893 907. All other trips are full with waiting lists. But, if you are really keen to go on any trip do make your wishes known to the organiser. Cancellations do happen and it is a pity to miss out.

Your Social Committee are delighted to confirm that the following events are now in place. (see pic at top of the page)

Cream Tea on the Terrace, accompanied by music from the Celebration String Duo at Aldwyns Restaurant, Audley Ellerslie, Malvern on Thursday 27th June. Tickets are limited so do HURRY and book ASAP
This is a unique event on probably the finest terrace in Malvern. Apart from the delicious cream tea and wonderful music of the Celebration String Duo there will also be an opportunity to look around some of the superb facilities at Audley Ellerslie, including the Spa. We have arranged this event as part of Midsummer Malvern, and this offers us the chance to showcase what our Centre is all about - wonderful talks, trips, events and fellowship. So please come and join us.
Thank you to the volunteers who have offered to be stewards for this event. I am so pleased that more of you are stepping forward to help us with our events. It really is appreciated.

You will notice that I have also included our poster for the Summer Pig Roast again that is to be held in August at Croome Park. Please share this with not only you own families but also friends and neighbours.

Please note that our next printed Newsletter will be posted out early September. This edition will also include membership renewal forms

Although headed June, I am sending this early as Felicity and myself are off to Scotland to walk the Caledonian Way. As Wainwright himself said, "there is no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing"!

Warm regards to you all, and safe travels wherever you are going

Dear WMNT Centre Member

Welcome to Spring in England. Soaring temperatures over Easter, rain and hailstones this week! The old adage of "cast ne`er a clout `till May is out" still holds true!

As you read this we are well into our 2019 programme. Our last talk of the season, by Wendy Carter at Hanley Swan Village Hall was, as always, a great success. Wendy was back by popular acclaim sharing her tremendous local wildlife knowledge. What a treat!
 
Clive has just led a sell-out trip to the Lake District. This was, as usual, a trip packed with an interesting itinary. Stop Press reports indicate a great time by all and we are looking forward to more details and photos in due course.

May sees two coach trips - May 1st to Canons Ashby and May 14th to Tyntesfield. For those of you fortunate enough to have a place - ENJOY!
STOP PRESS - still a few places for Tyntesfield - ring 01684 893 907 if you would like to go.

There are also still a few places for Coughton Court trip - to book a place please ring 01684 893 907.

Your committee are delighted to announce the appointment of our new Treasurer. A very warm welcome to Karen Haycock who was voted in at our committee meeting on the 10th April. Karen is a local business person, and lives at Castlemorton. Technically John Hubberd was due to stand down at the last AGM but very kindly (and typically) stayed on to enable us to follow proper procedures bringing Karen forward. Words are inadequate John, but THANK YOU for all you have done for us.
