Trip to Berwick Guild of Freemen

I am in the process of organising a trip to the Berwick Guild of Freemen for members, their partners and friends and the date they have suggested when their Town Hall is free is Saturday, 8th July 2017.

The provisional programme would be to arrive at 11am and meet in the Guild Hall for coffee.

Show round and talk in the Town Hall which is their home base.

Light lunch.

Walk round Berwick Wall with a guide, approx. one hour.

Alternatively for those who can't or don't want to do the walk there is a market in the High Street in front of the Town Hall or a wander round Berwick itself.

If the weather is wet then a bus tour around the estate.

Dinner at 6pm. - Depart 8pm.

To hire a coach or mini-bus for the full day will be extremely expensive, therefore it has been suggested to either car share or go by train.

Berwick have very kindly invited us and therefore there is no cost other than individual transport costs!

If you have not already confirmed to me your interest in going to Berwick I would be grateful to hear from you by Friday, 23rd June so we can confirm positive numbers back to them as soon as possible.

If you have any questions please get in touch. Email: kathleen.vasey@durham.ac.uk

Best wishes

Kathleen
