This is the menu that the restaurant has made for us. Hope it is to your satisfaction. If not, I am sure we can arrange something else. If you only want one course, then that’s fine. Money has started coming in for the coach – at £13 per head. If you would like to study the menu, and let me know in due course your choice. There is no rush, as it has to be in by the 6th September. Please head your reply with FILEY, so that I don’t miss it. Payment through our new account – again, no rush.
The format of the day will be leaving MKM Stadium at 9:45, and dropping everyone off near the restaurant, so that you know where you are dining. A short walk forwards will take you to the lovely crescent gardens with plenty of benches for you to look at the bay. As I said before, those who are fit, may want to walk down the steps to the beach – remember you have to get back up again!! The area around the restaurant has plenty of cafes for morning coffee, or a five minute walk will take you to the famous Dixons Discount Warehouse (I can’t resist). The time is yours. Back at the restaurant for 12.30 for lunch.
When we are ready, we will travel on to Thornton Le Dale for free time again. I will be doing the walk round the river and cottages, and hope there is time for an ice cream and a cuppa, if anyone wishes to join me. Last time I was there I managed to get a nosey at the communal gardens behind the Alms Houses – they were lovely, and showed their community spirit. And of course there is the car museum – I think something for everyone.
Hopefully the weather will be kind to us.
Take care Barbara
