A group photo from our 2017 holiday to Lake Bled, Slovenia

A group of 38 of our members had a memorable 6-day holiday based at Lake Bled.  There were many highlights including a visit to Postojna, one of the world’s largest cave systems and a wonderful day at Piran, a medieval town with a Venetian influence, a typical Mediterranean look and, on the day itself, a very Mediterranean climate.




In November we visited The Royal Mail Underground Railway and Museum.  One of our members taken back to yesteryear!
