Trip to Centennial Craft Fair in Harrogate

WI Centenary logo eeD5k3OX_400x400Unfortunately due to lack of support to the WI Centennial Fair it is not viable to run a coach from Market Harborough.   Some members will be going through and will be car sharing.  May be an option for other groups?

If anyone does prefer a coach trip, then the Leicestershire and Rutland Federation of WIs is planning a trip on Friday 4 September 2015.  The coach leaves WI House, Leicester LE4 5LQ at 9 am, returning from Harrogate at 4 pm, cost £22 to include coach and admission.  Whilst the fair is open to everyone, this coach trip is for WI members only.  Bookings by Monday 3 August 2015 on Event Booking Form 2015 1 (LRFWI).  Parking limited in Leicester so car sharing recommended.  Public parking in Royal Hotel.
