Rivertime_Boat_Trip_220819Rivertime Boat Trip - Henley Thursday 22nd August 2019 - click here for Photos

On 22nd August our Thursday clients enjoyed a trip to Henley to go on a boat trip. Marlow Rotary kindly donated the funds to cover the boat for us. We travelled by minibus to the River and Rowing Museum where we were to board the boat belonging to Rivertime Boat Trust.
When we arrived at Henley half of the group boarded the boat for their hours trip while the rest of us waved them off. We then enjoyed coffee and cake in the Museum cafe.
An hour later the groups swopped over, each group enjoying a packed lunch whilst on the boat trip.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and as you can see from the photos we had lovely weather too!
Our thanks again to Marlow Rotary for this great experience and also to Lucy our skipper and the Rivertime Boat trust for providing such a great facility.

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.
