BURN BRANCH NEWS
For our 2014 outing we decided to visit Nostell Priory. The day dawned glorious as the other days in this year’s summer. The sun was still shining when we got there, we made for the cafe first for coffee and cake to start the day, then a walk around the grounds which was very enjoyable, some of us went for a tour of the house. By then we had built up a gap for more food, so it was back to the cafe for lunch, the choice was very good, and then of course to the gift shop which was amply stocked. Afterwards we found seats to sit and look at the wonderful views and countryside and watch the world go by until it was time to return home.
Thanks go to our President Sheelagh Mews for organising it again, we also thought it was very kind of Nostell Priory to send a note thanking us for going and hoped we would go again. All in all another great day.
