This was a very pleasant run out for Sunday Lunch to The Red Lion at Ellesmere in Shropshire. We meet in the cafe at The Daleside (Strikes) Garden Centre. In convoy following John Sanderson on a route he planned that morning, to take us away from the boring A483. As we arrived into Ellesmere, we were greeted by the mere on our left. After parking up, we had a nice stroll by the side of the mere, watching some visitors feeding the ducks and geese that were there.
Once at the Red Lion, we were shown our table, which was a little bit of a tight squeeze with 11 members, and all proceeded to order our lunch. At one point our chairman wanted a drink, and said to John Ashton, to “breathe in fatty” so he could get past…Unaware of the “large” lady sitting next to them, who, luckily, had a sense of humour, else our chairman may have been dessert!
After leaving the pub, we had a nice slow walk back towards the cars along the side of the mere, where we met a few geese, who liked to pose for the camera.
