Worcestershire Cricket Society’s annual April trip will in 2018 include visits to Wimbledon, Lord’s and Wembley Stadium.

Society committee member Mike Hitchings was responsible for arranging the 2016 and 2017 excursions with overnight stops to Manchester (Old Trafford) and Portsmouth (the Ageas Bowl and Hove).

Now he has arranged a trip which takes in the homes of tennis, cricket and football in this country during a one night stay in the capital at the The Danubius Hotel, Regents Park on Sunday April 8 and Monday April 9.

The approximate cost per person will be about £200 which will include:

– cost of the 53 seater coach and a tip for the driver

– three course evening meal and a full English breakfast at the hotel

– entry for the three tours of Lord’s, Wimbledon and Wembley Stadium

Given the prices in London, the all-in package represents excellent value for money and has already attracted the interest of 20 plus members.

This is likely to be an extremely popular trip so anyone wanting to book a place must pay a £25 deposit.

This can be paid at the Society’s next monthly meeting next Tuesday or you can send a cheque to Mike Hitchings made out to ‘Worcestershire Cricket Society’ at 34 Derwent Drive, Mitton, Tewkesbury, Glos. GL20 8BB .

If you have any queries then he can be contacted on 07979 464715
