“As full of spirit as the month of May, and as gorgeous as the sun in Midsummer.”

William Shakespeare


Saturday 4rd May

Munch Coffee at 10 am

We will meet this month at the Munch Coffee, Royal Arcade Worthing.  As usual, no need to book but hopefully a good number of our ladies will be coming to enjoy a Saturday morning coffee and a chat




A wonderful opportunity to visit Exbury Gardens in Hampshire.

Travel by coach with several convenient pick up points between Lancing and Angmering.

The trip will include coach travel, entry to the Gardens and ticket to ride on the steam railway

As we still have some available places on the coach for this fabulous day out, should anyone want to bring a friend(s), please contact Queen Judy ASAP. 

Cost for non BM members will be £20 each to include coach travel, entrance to Exbury Gardens (with train ride) and snack on coach. 

Should anyone want to bring a friend, all we ask is that they wear something purple with a red hat! I’m sure our members can oblige! 

A super day out at a great price, so please let your friends know.
