'A Grand Day Out', in the words of Wallace and Gromit Yesterday we went by coach to Bibury for a WI tea and a wander round the village. A pretty village spoiled for us by the number of very noisy Japanese tourists. The tea was excellent and it celebrated the Bibury WI 100 years, Congratulations..
Lunch yesterday was held at the Wesley House. We were happy to eat our delicious food in the cooler area which has an A/C unit. There seems to be a change of chef as the menu was very different and the food excellent.
The monthly lunch yesterday was held at #5 North Street. The food and service is excellent and never disappoints. Little dishes appear with fresh breads to keep our interest until the food we ordered was being cooked.

We had a change of venue yesterday from the Lion to the White Hart. It was an excellent move, the food was hot and plentiful, the room pleasant and the service was very good, The Lion is off our rota list and the White Hart is an excellent substitute
Our coffee morning today was in a different venue. We had been going to the Lion for a number of years but decided to try Rosie's, the recently opened cafe and patisserie. We were very pleased with the ambience, service and prices and we will be back!
The talk today was 'Growing up in Norway during the German Occupation'. It was given by Tore Fauske, and made all of us brought up in the UK during the war feel very fortunate, he mentioned eating Whale which was available in the UK too...
Lunch at the Corner Cupboard yesterday was a lively meal. We all know each other better as we continue to meet for a monthly lunch. The fish and chips were enormous portions, so much larger than our previous visit..
