MARLDON BOWLING CLUB 2018 TOUR
HEREFORDSHIRE & POWYS (Mid Wales)
Sunday 20th until Friday 25th May (6 Days, 5 Nights)
The 2018 Tour has been arranged to visit Herefordshire and Powys making the Green Dragon Hotel in Hereford our base for 5 nights. The hotel is situated in the centre of this lovely city, with its imposing Cathedral, which houses the Mappa Mundi and Chained Library Exhibitions being only minutes away. This will be the 3rd time we have visited the city and the Hotel, the last time was in 2014 and on previous occasions we have had a really good time, being welcomed wherever we have gone. Five games have been arranged during our stay the venues being Hereford BC on the Sunday where a Buffet Lunch has been arranged, and at Leominster, Brecon (in the Black Mountains) Llandrindod Wells (the home of Bowls Wales) and Bulmers BC in Hereford, (the home of cider making). All are 6 Rink Mixed games.
The Hotel has 83 Bedrooms and accommodation is on a Bed, Breakfast and Evening Dinner Basis, in en suite rooms with tea and coffee making, telephone, hair dryer,
Wifi & TV. There is a Lift which serves all floors. All meals are Buffet Style served in
the John Spices' Restaurant. The restaurant motto is, Eat what you want, As much as you like, in any order you like.
There is the Garrick Coffee Lounge and Hotel Bar, and a Residents Lounge which has the charm of Victorian times, with its large comfy settees, chairs, and decor. A 49 seat Executive Coach will transport us throughout the tour and will be supplied by Bennett Travel of Kingsteignton and providing he is still employed at Bennetts, Steve will be our driver. The hotel does not provide entertainment in the evening, but we have not found this to be a problem as the city centre only a few minutes away with all its amenities there is enough to keep one occupied. However, we are organising a Skittles Evening at a local venue, plus the Prize Presentation for the Thursday evening, to be followed by music for dancing.
The tour will depart Marldon Post Office at 8am, picking up at Marldon School and Vicarage Hill, and will stop for Coffee en-route before arriving at Hereford BC for a Buffet Lunch and afternoon game.
