Hastings Borough Branch Unison Retired Members

THIS month our outing was to the Sussex Hampshire borders via Angmering and Bosham, for a visit to Stansted Park.

Our first stop at Angmering was for refreshments at Hoskins Roundstone Garden Centre and with time for members to make any purchases, before continuing our journey to Bosham for lunch.

Unfortunately on arrival we found most of the usual eating venues were closed so it was a tight fit in the one that was open. An enjoyable visit all the same. Then on to Stansted Park for the afternoon.

Following a short introduction members were then able to explore the house and grounds at their own pace. A most interesting house with extensive below stairs servants’ quarters restored and furnished in great authenticity. Tea in the Pavilion Tea Rooms preceded our journey home, which due to an unknown traffic problem, added considerable time to our journey resulting in a much later than normal arrival home.

The October outing will be a visit to Buckingham Palace, Worthing Pavilion Theatre in November and Christmas Lunch at the Brickwall Hotel, Sedlescombe in December.

Members please note the November meeting will now be on November 28 and there will be no meeting in December.
