Visit to Lady Nancy Astor’s home on Plymouth Hoe – Hosted by Lord Mayor Mr Sam Davey

A number of members enjoyed a really interesting and informative afternoon at 3 Elliot Terrace, home of Lady Nancy Astor the first female MP to take her seat in the House of Commons. A very knowledgeable guide gave a talk and tour of the house and we were very appreciative of the time given by the Lord Mayor and the Mace Bearer.

Visit to The Garden House, Yelverton

Perfect weather made for a perfect afternoon at The Garden House, Buckland Monachorum. A group of members enjoyed a stroll around the beautiful and interesting gardens with azaleas, rhododendrons and wisteria in bloom. A lovely cream tea provided a fitting end to the social outing.
