Trip to Saltaire – 19 August 2022

A day trip to Saltaire has been arranged, on Friday 19 August. We will meet at 08.45 outside Addisons, Galgate, Barnard Castle, returning about 18.00.

For anyone who has not been to Saltaire before, it is a large site with parks, boat trips on the river, guided walks around the village & the mill, which encompasses retail stationary, books, home, gifts, large cafe, art galleries with the latest David Hockney paintings. There is a lot of walking.

The cost will be £18.50 each for the coach, and £7.50 each for the guided walk around the village with Maria Glot ( who spoke at our last monthly meeting) and her team  It is slightly hilly and takes 60-90 minutes, ‘going as slow as the slowest people’. You are all given a bookmark with who you are for the day, could be a child worker, a manger, their wife or a general worker, stating where you lived in the village and some facts about ‘you’. As you walk through the village you will find where ‘you’ lived.

If you would like to go on the trip could you let me know as soon as possible please, and whether you want to go on the guided walk.

I will let you know when I need payment.
