Hi Everyone

There is a good selection of breakfasts, snacks, tea and coffee etc if you wish to arrive early enough. The shops and garden centre at the Pottery Village open at 10:00am should you want to browse around.
We will depart at 10:30am for the first leg of our drive. As we have a destination arrival time of 2pm prompt at the Castle. The days programme is time critical and we ask everyone to be ready to depart at the designated times of our run please.

We hope you enjoy the day.

Angie and Chris have very kindly offered to host the September 2023 Sunday Run.

Yes, we know it is very early to post this, but as it is something very special which has to be booked with the venue well in advance and they request a £100.00 deposit (which works out at £5.00) for the minimum of 20 guests, firstly we need to gage interest and secondly need to pay the deposit by 20th February.

This will start with a traditional Sunday Run finishing at Tutbury Castle by approximately 2pm. Lesly Smith the Curator of Tutbury Castle will be presenting “An Audience with Queen Elizabeth 1”. For anyone who has not heard of her, she is an Historian that dresses up as well known historical characters and gives you a talk about their lives, as if she is that person. (Having seen her as Nell Gwynn I can certainly agree she is very good). You also have a chance to ask her questions at the end. This will last for approximately 45 mins to an hour. In the Great Hall at Tutbury Castle.

Just for clarity please be aware, in the first instance this is for North East Midlands Members first and if we do not fill the maximum 34 places, we can invite those members from other areas if anyone is interested.
This will be followed by afternoon tea at 3:45pm. More details of the actual run will be posted nearer the time.

Please add your names to the thread if you would like to join Angie and Chris.

Kind Regards
David and Ann on behalf of Angie and Chris
