Day Trip to Cherbourg - August 2016
The latest 'Would you like to join us' outing took 4 members to Cherbourg from Poole on 25 August 2016 on board Brittany Ferries 'Barfleur' for the princely sum of £24.
The weather was superb and sea conditions were flat calm resulting in a smooth and comfortable trip to France.
On arrival a complimentary shuttle bus took us from the ship, through controls to the 'Centre Ville' where we could not resist a lovely French lunch with a few glasses of vin rouge. A casual stroll around the town's attractions under clear blue skies regenerated our appetite for the return crossing which was similarly billiard table smooth.
On arrival in Poole we were in time to see the Thursday firework display which rounded off a super day sur le continent.
And ...... Brexit had no adverse effect on the day's enjoyment!
It would have been great had more members joined us in support of the club's new 'Would you like to join us" initiative. We will ensure hard copy leaflets are distributed at luncheons in the future to improve promotion of these events although they are publicised on our website and you are encouraged to view the site regularly to ensure you do not miss future opportunities.
