As the rule of six is back in place from 29 March, we’re able to start some local outings again.
Knole Park – Saturday 3 April
Knole Park is a 100 acre site full of wild deer. The house won’t be open but there is still plenty of opportunity to photograph the outside of it as well as the park itself. The toilets and cafe are now open too!
You’ll need to pre-book your parking place – the earliest slot (10am) is best as you can stay all day. Tickets are £5 or free for National Trust members and should be available from Friday 26 March here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/o/knole-national-trust-19806756511
Please email Charlotte if you’re planning to go.
Brutalist London – Saturday 17 April
Meet at London Bridge station at 10am for a walk through the City to the Barbican Centre – full route to be decided so feel free to send suggestions!
Again, please email Charlotte if you’re planning to go. If there are more than six people then we’ll need to split into two groups and ensure we maintain social distancing.
At our September 2021 AGM the Committee will have a vacancy for the role of Treasurer and Membership Secretary. These roles are currently combined into a single one but if anyone would be interested in taking on either or both of these roles could you please speak to a Committee member. The current Treasurer would be willing to shadow you for the first year.
