CLUSTER GROUP D DAY LANDINGS BATTLEFIELDS VISIT 2019
As a result of the successful Cluster Parish Pilgrimage to the WW1 battlefields which was held in April 2018, it has been suggested that we should plan a follow up experience to the D Day Landings beaches in Normandy. This note is an invitation to anyone who might be interested in participation in such a visit. Depending on numbers (30 minimum), the tour will travel to Normandy on Sunday 25th and return on Friday 30th August 2019. Accommodation will be at the Novotel,
Bayeux and the cost will be £600 pp with £95 single person supplement.
The itinerary will include visits to Pegasus Bridge, Sword, Gold Juno and Omaha beaches as well as a number of museums and other less well known sites.
Further details are available from Des Brogan on 07710 720774, bookings need to be made in the next few weeks so early contact is essential.
SSVDP—A Happy and Holy 2019 to all our Parishioners. Once again you have been very generous to the Society. The money collected will be put to good use.
