A holiday break in Bournemouth for
North East Associates

- 27th to 31st March -

Just to let you know, the Bournemouth trip was a success.

Rooms, which were a bit tired, were clean and comfortable.  The Britannia Roundhouse Hotel staff were great - nothing was too much trouble.

The food was excellent with a choice of three mains each night - all very tasty.

Food was everywhere!

The hotel was conveniently located close to a Wetherspoons, a Tesco and a paper shop.
Evening entertainment ranged from very good to "do we have to?" - so song sheets came out one night.

Buses from Bournemouth Square all came past our hotel too, so the walk up from the pier was not necessary.

The days out were to places close by so not too much time on the coach.  We had good weather and one of the party even risked shorts.

One included excursion took us to Lyndhurst in the New Forest, where a shop window display took us way back in time.

Our parents told us about these . . .

On another day we were taken to both Poole and Swanage on the coast.

On our free day a few met up with magazine editor
David H and his wife, Viv, with Bob P, Peter B, and Colin H
having a great time reminiscing about the 70's and 80's
in Longbenton and Tyne Tunnel Plant.


Some stayed close to home while others ventured far - west to Weymouth - east to Christchurch and Portsmouth – north to Salisbury.

Daily quiz prizes were shared out with very few missing out on the gin or chocolates.
