William Morris, Boat Trip & Tea - September, 2019
Don’t you just love it when a plan comes together? Brand new coach, no traffic delays, autumn sunshine and a brilliant Blue Badge Guide by the name of Owen for this trip.
Owen joined us when we arrived at the William Morris Gallery and gave us an overview of the man and his life before we visited the beautiful house and saw many exhibitions of his life and work.
The tour through Epping Forest was very pretty and our coach driver used his expert skills to navigate through some rather small roads! After a quick lunch in Epping, we continued our journey to Broxbourne where we boarded a boat for a rather lovely Cream Tea cruise. - Sue Russell
"Many thanks for yet another good day out yesterday. It was good to venture into 'foreign parts' as neither of us had been to Walthamstow or that area before. Certainly worth another trip some time." - Tony and Mary Rexstrew.
"Thank you for organizing yet another lovely day out. William Morris Gallery was very interesting. Then the trip though Epping Forest with the sun shining through the trees was so enjoyable. Owen was great. His diction was so clear & he had such a good sense of humour. We were lucky to be on a new coach which was very comfortable & had a very good sound system. Thoroughly enjoyed the cruise, with Owen still able to make us laugh. I know Tony & John made it worth his while!" - Doreen & John Tessier.
"Thanks for organising another very enjoyable trip. Everything went extremely smoothly, no problems with the journey, the programme was well thought out, the Blue Badge guide very informative and lovely weather included. I'm sorry that Sue couldn't come, she would have enjoyed the day but thank you for letting our daughter Vanessa take her place.” - Bryan Barnes.
