Bushey's Brewery
Wednesday 5th September 2007

Preceded by a meal at The Hop Garden, a good number of members enjoyed a tour of Bushey's Brewery. We learned with great interest the brewing process from start to finish and of course their excellent beer was sampled with enthusiasm! Thanks to Bushey's staff for their hospitality and to Ruth for organising the outing.

Scarlett and Langness
Thursday 2nd August 2007

A lovely sunny evening was perfect weather for our visit to Scarlett and Langness with Geologist Anthony Wilkes who showed us fossils and interesting rock formations and talked about how they came about. A good number of members turned out and enjoyed the fascinating facts about this area, many thanks to Mr Wilkes for a very interesting insight into the geology of the area and to Hannah for organising the outing.
