Visit to the House of Lords

SI Solihull is very lucky to have, as one of our members, Baroness Burt of Solihull.  In July 2017 we were delighted to visit Lorley at her place of work – a fascinating and exciting day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Visit to Highgrove House.

25 Club members and friends have recently spent a very enjoyable day out at Highgrove House, the home of Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall.  After a leisurely drive through the picturesque Cotswolds and a brief stop in the delightful town of Tetbury, the coach arrived at Highgrove House.  After security checks, our very knowlegeable guide escorted us around the beautiful gardens, telling us about the history and inspiration of its development and the people who influenced and advised Prince Charles.  Amongst the highlights were a beautiful, brightly coloured wild flower meadow, the stumpery, the small arboretum, the walled vegetable garden and the acres of topiary hedges.  Our tour was followed by a delicious lunch in the Orchard restaurant and shopping for souvenirs in the Estate shop before returning on our journey home.

 

2017 will be another busy year.  For more information on our events please contact Judith at judithajames@virginmedia.com
