There are still some places available for our trip to Wensleydale next week so we’ve extended the booking deadline to Monday 25 September. If you’re a Carer and you’d like to go along, give Marian a call on 01539 815970.
We have been fortunate to obtain funding from the Carers Trust for a Carers’ trip and volunteer Nancy Huck has kindly organised a visit to the Wensleydale Creamery on Wednesday 27 September.
We will travel by coach through the Yorkshire Dales to the Creamery – the home of Wensleydale cheese – where you can watch a cheese making demonstration (one of their Cheese Experts will craft a 500g cheese from 8 pints of milk in 40 minutes), visit the Museum, take part in interactive games and exhibits and learn about the 1,000 year history of Yorkshire Wensleydale cheese. Or, if you’d prefer, you can wander around the market town of Hawes with its Museum and shops.
If you would like to visit the “Cheese Experience”, please let us know when you complete the form as we will need to book this in advance.
The Wensleydale Creamery has a restaurant and coffee shop in which you can enjoy lunch.
Although the trip is free to Carers we are asking for a £5 deposit to secure your place. This will be refunded to you on arrival at Kendal Leisure Centre (if you wish this can be donated to South Lakeland Carers, please indicate on the reply slip by ticking the applicable box). If you cancel and we are not able to reallocate your place we will be unable to offer a refund.
We will leave Kendal Leisure Centre at 9.30 am and return at approximately 5.00 pm.
There will be room for folding wheelchairs on the coach – please complete the form as necessary.
If you would like to go on the trip, please complete this form and return along with your payment/deposit as applicable to South Lakeland Carers, Unit 16, Shap Road Industrial Estate, Kendal, LA9 6NZ, to reach us by Friday 15 September. Cheques should be made payable to ‘South Lakeland Carers’.
Places will be allocated on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.
