Winchcombe coach trip 7 June

The trip will start from Newport Civic Centre lower car park. Park cars at either the upper car park or on street. Pick up time 9.00am. The cost of the trip will be £26 to include coach, carvery meal on the way back and gratuities.

There will be a seven and a half mile moderate walk led by Mike with some beautiful views over the Vale of Evesham and surrounding countryside and there should be a little time to spend in Winchcombe itself.

Alternatively for those not wanting to walk there is Sudeley Castle about half a mile from Winchcombe which is well worth a visit. Mike and I visited last summer and would really recommend it. The entrance fee is £17.25 or if booked online £15.50 which includes a guided tour of the castle and house rooms and gardens.  There is also a nice café there serving snacks and lunches etc.

Book asap and payment required by 17 May. Call Joan on 01633 864664 or 07950 296207.
