Retired Members social visit to Romsey

We had arranged to meet at Miss Moody’s Tudor Tearooms, near King John’s House and Museum in Romsey, and although several members had already said they couldn’t come, Chris and Lynda, Sue, Joe, and Diana were pleased that John and his son (and wheelchair pusher), Mark, turned up. We had an enjoyable lunch, and set off for the War Memorial Park. It was a lovely day, and we pottered around, enjoying the gardens. We were intrigued by the Japanese cannon presented by Lord Mountbatten after the Second World War, and the statue of a War Horse from the Great War, remembering how the park was used as a Remount Centre.

We were able to buy our tea at the café in the park before they closed at 3.00 (so many cafés close just when most people think it’s tea time!) and were later joined by Diane after she had finished her volunteering shift. It was good to gather and chat:  we will arrange more social events soon, and will try to give you more notice…
