I'm hoping to encourage a good turn out for this trip to look at the stained glass windows in Fairford Church which date back to the 14th Century, and are some of the oldest ones still in existence. The church has a 4 star Heritage rating
On a recent trip, I took some photos, firstly of The Bull where some of us are meeting before the trip for lunch at 12.30pm:
also indicate whether you'd like to join us for lunch because I need to book a table.

On Monday, a group of 30 Friends visited Roche Court on one of the brightest, sunniest days we've had this year. It was glorious. We arrived about 12.35pm after a lovely coach ride through leafy Wiltshire countryside, and were greeted warmly by Beth and Francesca and introduced to our picnic spot overlooking the valley to one side of Roche Court.
