Waterperry Gardens 160719Waterperry Gardens 16th July 2019 - click here for photos

On Tuesday 16th July Headway South Bucks enjoyed a lovely day out to Waterperry Gardens in Oxford. It was a beautiful sunny day and very warm! On arrival we enjoyed tea and coffee followed by a lovely lunch of sandwiches, crisps and fruit. We were seated under a large canopied area which meant we could enjoy being outside but were protected from the sun. As you can see from the photos we were all seated together which was really nice as everyone was able to join in the many conversations.
After lunch we were able to wander around the beautiful gardens enjoying the many different areas there are to explore. As you can see from the photos there is an amphitheatre, a river walk, a museum, a pond, numerous flower displays and a delightful saxon church. For those who wanted retail therapy there was a farm shop, gallery, garden shop and nursery.
At 2,30pm we all met up again to enjoy an afternoon tea of scones, jam and clotted cream plus homemade cakes! Oh and of course more tea and coffee!
Suitably full we boarded the coach to return to Bourne End after what can only be described as a thoroughly enjoyable day.
A few comments from those who attended : Beautiful day, Brilliant day out, It was really splendid.

Calendar Girls 270319Woking Theatre - Calendar Girls 27th March 2019 - click here for photos

This week nearly 50 of us went to see Calendar Girls - The Musical at Woking Theatre. Setting off from Bourne End, in a coach convoy, we navigated the M25 and M3 and made our way to Surrey. We stopped at the Talbot Inn Restaurant for a delicious lunch before settling down for the matinee performance. Calendar Girls - the Musical - is based on a true story of a group of Yorkshire women who agree to create and sell a nude charity calendar. As members of the WI, they pose behind various props - iced buns, balls of wool, a wheelbarrow, a piano - All done in the best possible taste, though 'We're Going to Need Considerably Bigger Buns!’ ! It was great fun and poignant at the same time. Another well organised and enjoyable outing. Thank you Team HSB.
