2019 Programme




February 28th: Annual General Meeting. This was held in St Catherine’s Church Hall. Christopher Legrand gave a fascinating talk after the meeting on ‘Treasures of Dorset’.

March 20th: A pub lunch was held at the Stocks Public House, Furzehill. Good food, drink and conversation were enjoyed by the 15 members who came along.

May 10th: A skittles evening was held by the Valognes Twinning Association (WVTA) with a fish and chip supper at Pamphill Village Hall.

June 5th: We had another enjoyable pub lunch, this time at Lambs Green in Corfe Mullen, with 14 members involved.


July 18th to 21st, returning to the UK on July 22nd: We will visit our friends in Ochsenfurt. Most people will travel by coach to Heathrow and then by 'plane to Frankfurt.

September 5th: We will visit the Langham Wine Estate. The vineyard is at Crawthorne near Dorchester. This will be a great opportunity to take a guided tour around one of the best vineyards in the area and, more importantly, to taste their excellent sparkling wine. There will be no problems with having to drive, as we will be providing transport. We will leave by coach from the Allendale Car Park at 13.00 and return to Wimborne at 17.00. The cost (which covers the tour, wine tasting and transport!) is just £22 per head. We do not need payment now (we will sort that out later), but anyone who would like to take part in this visit should let Philip Maul (PhilipMaul@wimborneochsenfurt.org.uk) know as soon as possible to ensure that their name is on the list.

November 16th and 17th: This weekend we will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of our society. The committee is currently planning events for this important occasion, and detailed information will be provided as soon as it is available.
