I belong to a very well known and well established womens’ group – the formation of which commenced over a century ago and many federations are still going strong. The appeal for the younger woman is a bit tricky in some areas where there is still a massive bastian of the previous generation, but on the whole a midway interest can be found. To this end I have been researching and sourcing venues for lunch club activities. This is not as easy as I originally assumed. Two or three pubs on my list – handed on from past members, have now been closed and converted to homes. However, two fairly local ones have been converted to holiday cottages. what a fantastic idea. We all know how gorgeous those old thatched pubs were to sit in. Fancy being able to hire one as a holiday home. The stay at home holiday seems utterly appealing now!
