The trip to the start at Vallum Garden Centre near Corbridge was uneventful up to the last few miles when we caught up with a slow wide load but thankfully it turned off after a few miles and we soon made up some time
We got signed on and enjoyed the bacon & sausage butty and good conversation. It was great to meet everybody.
After checking out our very full goody bag it was time for a rest and a shower so we felt ready to tackle the evening. We took the long walk, all of 30 feet, to the dining room where a sparkling wine and canape reception was laid on before eating a delicious buffet meal.
We won a prize in the raffle, a set of car cleaning cloths. Anybody who know me will see the funny side of this. Once again it was conversation time and we met new folk and caught up with others we'd met before. All in all a great night and a fitting end to a super day.
Once again, thanks to Pam for most of the photos. I haven't mastered the art of driving and taking pictures at the same time.
