In sweltering heat Lodge of Unity members, together with their friends and family, took a 90 minute guided tour of Warwick.
Tourists travel across the world to visit our town with its ancient buildings and medieval castle, while those of us who live and work in the area, perhaps take them for granted, walking past them on a daily basis, rarely considering the town’s history of which we are a part.
Led by official tour guides Graham and Maureen Sutherland, we were able to enjoy Warwick as the tourists do. The tour took in many of Warwick’s finest historical buildings and including Lord Leycester Hospital (where we will be holding our Ladies Festival in November), the jail house, St Mary’s Church, the market place with Randolph Turpin’s statue and the castle. And what an amazing and beautiful town Warwick is with stunning picturesque views and noble history.
The walk was followed by a well-earned Pimms on the lawn of Alderson House’s award winning garden and a relaxing (air conditioned) Sunday Lunch. Guest’s generosity helped us to raise a further £318 for Zoes Place.
