Wallington Weekend – 8th-10th May

The second Wallington weekend will be the 8th – 10th of May.
We’ll leave around 6 o’clock on the Friday and return in time for dinner on the Sunday.

We’ll be staying in the bunkhouse again, so we’ll have a kitchen, bathroom etc, but there are no shops close by. Like last time it’ll be £10 for food and some snacks, but if you want more fancy chocolate and alcohol you’ll have to bring it yourself. :)

I suspect we’ll get to see the rest of the house and Lloyd promised us a visit to the clock tower, so it should be good.
As always we’ll be working outside and probably going on a walk, so fingers crossed for a sunny weekend!

If you want to come, please let Natalie ( know before Friday the 1st of May by sending an email with your name and any allergies/dietary requirements you may have.
