Pegswood with Bothal WI

PEGSWOOD with Bothal WI members caught the bus for our summer outing.

We drove to Low Gate WI, near Hexham. The ladies of the WI served us with a lovely lunch of ham salad and a variety of mouth-watering desserts.

Then we were off again on our trip to Allendale where we made a coffee stop.

It was once again on to the road to Weardale, over the moors with purple heather everywhere. There were such wonderful scenic views, and the weather could not have been better, with sunshine all the way. Next we went to Stanhope, then back into Northumberland for a short stop at Corbridge. It was then back home to Pegswood after a wonderful day with good friends. Sadly, Mrs Nancy Fowlie missed the trip as she is ill – we missed you Nancy, get well soon. The next meeting is on Tuesday, September 3. Anyone interested in joining our small, but friendly, group please come along. The meeting starts at 7pm at St Margaret’s Church Hall in Longhirst Road, Pegswood.
