We are planning to go to Halfpenny Green Wine Estate in Shropshire.  We will leave at around 09.30 and travel by coach. 

 The cost of the coach will be in the region of £10.00 - £12.00 but this is approximate as it depends on the number of people going on the
outing. When we arrive at Halfpenny Green, we will have a tour, tasting and cold lunch.

The tasting includes 3 still wines and 1 sparkling wine and is followed by a cold platter main and dessert. The cost of this is £24.95 per
person. The total cost of the outing will therefore be between £35.00 and £40.00.

There is also a shop and deli, craft centre and wild zoo on site so plenty to do there.  You can find out more about the Halfpenny Green vineyards at

We need a minimum of 15 people for the booking and we must book quickly to keep this date, so if you are interested please contact
Jenny Holcroft: 01565 632 267,or email:
as soon as possible and let her know you would like to join us.
