Launde Abbey 2012
Launde Abbey Autumn Break -October 2012
For our autumn break this year we spent the weekend at Launde Abbey in Leicestershire. It was good to meet up together with lots of familiar faces and also to meet some new people as well.
On the Friday evening we had a time of getting to know you games together with an epilogue. On Saturday morning we had a thought for the day, then Patricia led a craft workshop and those who took part made some nice cards. After coffee Howard led a walk – we enjoyed the lovely grounds and scenery around Launde Abbey together with the beautiful autumn colours all around. After lunch several of us enjoyed a scenic boat trip on Rutland water. We worried we were going to miss the boat but we just made it in time. In the evening different members took part with contributions such as reading stories, we also had fun doing Howard’s quiz and some country dancing. On Sunday morning we had an in house service. After lunch it was time to say farewell to everyone but we were happy after enjoying some very good food and a lovely venue. With thanks to Brenda, Howard and all who helped to give us such an enjoyable weekend away. We now look forward to our New Year holiday at Shallowford House in Staffordshire.
Many thanks to Sarah for her excellent report! SF
