Event Type

Meeting at Anna’s Cafe Tower Junction to leave at 10:30.  Come a little earlier for a cuppa  and to buy your picnic lunch if its cooks day off.

BYO Picnic  to enjoy at historic Barrhill, an English model village 17 Km’s inland from Rakaia. It was envisioned by John Cathcart Wason in the 1870’s. It was a failed vision but the village character remains.

A casual drive through Lincoln to Rakaia and ending up near Methven, with a little bit of interest along the way.
