On Saturday 39 of us set off to Exeter at 9am for our annual Christmas shopping trip. We had a very smooth uneventful journey although it took over half an hour to actually arrive in Exeter town centre due to the volume of traffic. It was a good day despite the weather and everyone enjoyed the large variety of shops and also the Cathedral and Museum.

Forty-nine of us set off at 9 am last Saturday on a cold but sunny morning for our annual Christmas shopping trip, which this year was to Cheltenham. It was one of our shorter trips but we all enjoyed looking around the various shops and the Christmas Market.  Several of us also explored the Museum which was a maze of small, interesting rooms.

Over 30 members and friends set off by coach on a crisp, sunny Saturday morning for our annual Christmas shopping trip - this year to the lovely city of Worcester. Judging by the amount of large carrier bags that came back on the coach after a busy day I think I speak for everyone when I say a good time was had by all.
