Fourteen Travel Group members have just returned from a Riviera Travel holiday in Northern Croatia.  A full report is available above.


Our summer social event in Hylands Park, the Picnic in the Park, has also happened since the last newsletter.  Sixteen members had a very pleasant afternoon picnic and exchange of stories of trips taken and trips planned.  While there was a big event nearby on our arrival there was hardly any traffic at all while in the park the authorities did a very good job. We were directed to the main car park and had it all but to ourselves, event parkers being directed elsewhere.  Sandwiches, summer fruits and shared goodies made for a lovely afternoon.


Our holidays for the balance of the year are to North Cyprus in September run by Just You, and by coach trip to Liverpool, also in September, with over 30 members due to participate.


Next May we have a holiday with Preferred Travel in Crete.  Thirteen members have committed to this one.  In October (2020) there is a coach holiday with Just for Groups, ‘The Scenic Severn Valley and the Black Country’.  Fourteen have so far committed to this one. Thought is being given to other possibilities too.
