Peter Williams, our Deacon, arranged this holiday which was a great success. The group, most of whom can be seen above, went by coach to the Tarbet hotel with magnificent views of the Loch and Ben Lomond on the far side with its snow-capped head. Each day of the 5-day holiday was organised with coach outings, packed lunches provided, returning at four o'clock to tea and cake. In the evening there was entertainment laid on, with quizzes or music for those who wanted. There was also a special privilege for these out of season coach parties - free drinks all evening! The added benefit of sunshine and no rain other than overnight, made it a very enjoyable holiday at an unusual time of year.
Below are just a small selection of many of the photos taken over the five-day trip.
