Invitation to the late summer Holiday Weekend

All members and their guests are warmly invited to join us for our annual social weekend. This year we are off to Oxfordshire for the weekend of Thursday 21st to Sunday 24th September 2017. The Hotel is the Oxford Witney Four Pillars Hotel, Ducklington Lane, Witney.

Attractions near Witney include The Blanket Hall, the Oxford Bus and Morris Motors Museum, and Blenheim Palace in Woodstock. In Oxford itself there is Magdalen College, Christ Church, Oxford Cathedral (the film set for Hogwarts in the Harry Potter films), the Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archeology, the University Museum of Natural History, and Christ Church Meadow for walks by the Thames. West of Oxford, you can explore the Cotswold villages, Burford, and Bourton-on-the-Water for the microbrewery. The atmospheric 15th century ruins of Minster Lovell Hall and Dovecote are by the idyllic River Windrush (pictured below).

Our special rate for a standard room for two people sharing is £114 per room, per night, for dinner, bed & breakfast. The single supplement is £45 per night, making the single rate £102. Therefore, for the three nights, the cost is £342 for a double, and £306 for single guests.

Please email our Social Secretary Eldon Mackridge and indicate your interest in coming, so he can arrange the numbers with the hotel.
