12:30-1:30 PM LUNCH
Lunch will be at the Workshops Café. Please note that the fare will be a little rudimentary. Should you wish to bring a picnic lunch that will be okay. My lack of knowledge of Ipswich prevents me from recommending a park close by. Should anyone have any suggestions prior to Sunday please don’t hesitate to send through your thoughts to Mike Taylor.
Stage 2 There is no specific drive planned for this afternoon. However, there are a number of alternatives available to us should there be sufficient interest from the members. We will discuss these options either at breakfast or lunch
