We are planning a day out in Exmouth on Wednesday 23rd May

Details - Meet for car sharing at usual place at 9.30 am. We will park at Starcross and take the 10.10 ferry to Exmouth. Return trip is £6. Well behaved dogs are free
When we arrive at Exmouth we will have a coffee stop in a nearby restaurant before taking a fairly leisurely walk along the sea front to Orcombe Point and back. You are welcome to do some retail therapy or stride out for a longer walk if you prefer. Lunch can be taken on the harbour side (or packed lunch if you prefer). The ferry returns hourly. No need to book.


We are fully booked on the Group holidays to the Lake District in June, and Chamonix in September but we are looking into the possibility of a week in either Malta or Jersey in October.

The Malta holiday is likely to cost £600+ for B&B for two sharing

The Jersey holiday is a flight from Exeter with coach trips included (organised through Majestic) Cost is £595 half board

If you might be interested please contact Anne with choice of holiday so I can see if/which one is most popular (Anne McCallister (01626 864046 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)
