From Angy Ellis
It was a wonderful morning, the light was bright and the weather was dry so everything was set to have a lovely walk through the bluebell woods Durham snapping and chatting.
Alan Sharp kindly led the expedition walking us from the park n ride to the woods, through the woods and back out again conveniently near the Durham Rugby club, where we enjoyed food & drinks.
The Bluebells were beautiful, the blanket of wild garlic impressive and the hints and tips invaluable.
Thank you to everyone who attended, see you at the next one.
From Dave Murrell.

We will meet in the car park at 10am. normal entrance fees apply, £5 or £3 for concessions but we will be given free passes to access the Vulcan and Trident. as well as gaining access to some areas that the public normally can’t get to.
There is a small coffee place, picnics are welcome and there’s a good Italian, the 3 Horse Shoes that does snacks and food (and beer) beside the museum.
