This email is advance notice that Ledbury CTC are pleased to announce that they have taken over the mantle of the annual West Country weekend from Ross-on-Wye and will be hosting a Daffodil Weekend.
Dates – 27 – 29 March, Friday evening through Sunday lunchtime
Base: Much Marcle Memorial Hall, HR8 2LY
The Ledbury and Newent area is renowned for its beautiful wild daffodils that cover the woods and verges with carpets of yellow, which are glorious sights even for people who live here and witness them every year. However, we also have fantastic cycling along quiet country lanes with fabulous vistas of the Black Mountains, The Malverns, The Cotswold Hills and our iconic Mayhill, with tall pine trees on top commemorating Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee and our present queen's Silver Jubilee..
We extend a warm invitation for you to join us so that we can have the pleasure of your company and to show you our routes.
The program for the weekend will be formally announced over the next week when we will send out details of prices, the program and booking forms. We will not be offering indoor accommodation this year, but arrangements have been made for campervans to park in the lovely setting of the historical house of Helens just down the road from the hall. There is a good variety of accommodation in the near vicinity – the Much Marcle website has useful listings – www.muchmarcle.net – and there is more in Ledbury and Ross-on-Wye, each approx. 4 – 5 miles away. See www.comecyclingledbury.com for suggestions!
Please do not reply to this email because we are not fully ready yet to deal with enquiries, but we did want you to know about the event so that you could put it in your diaries. However, if you do not want us to send you further details, then we are happy to remove you from our next circulation, so please let us know on email@example.com
With best wishes,
Pat Strauss and Ann Fontbin
