Other than that, I would say that provision of accommodation, with expansion into a full weekend, attracting our distant & overseas members, makes Abbotsholme a wonderfull venue. To re-introduce a Stanford Hall SOC event would dilute this. Anyone with a yearning for Stanford Hall can attend VMCC Founders Day.
Committee discussion should centre around easing the burden on you & your family.
Should there be others out there who, like myself, are old enough to remember Gatherings at Crown Meadow, Evesham, don’t you dare suggest returning there !
