Up Coming Events

The Events team has been working to compile an interesting list of events for this year and we so hope that many of you will join us to enjoy these trips both close to home and further afield. We respectfully ask that each person attending, has a Lateral Flow Test prior to the event, to ensure a little more peace of mind for those of us who may still feel vulnerable.

We are still hoping for more FofC Events Committee members, so if you have workable computer skills, are happy to receive and process emails and an enthusiasm for concocting interesting days out, please contact Linda and we will explain a little more of what this entails. Coffee and biscuits always makes an appearance at meetings and a good chat helps us on our way.

If you are interested in any of the events, please complete the appropriate reply slip(s) and return them with your cheque(s) and a stamped addressed envelope to the named person by the dates given. One cheque per event please.

You may also like to explore our website friendsofcroome.org.uk which has details of present and future events exclusive to Friends of Croome members, plus copies of our newsletters.

If you wish to bring a friend there will be an additional charge of £2 per event for non-members, if space permits after the closing date.
Polite request please: when on a coach trip from Croome we ask that you park at the top right-hand side of the car park, behind the ambulance garage, thus freeing up spaces for visitors.

Please make sure that you provide an emergency contact number not only for your peace of mind but ours should it be necessary to get in touch with anyone should anything amiss occur.
