An Illuminated Arboretum Walk

The National Memorial Arboretum, Alrewas
Saturday 15th December : 6:00pm

Iliffe Atwood writes :

I realise this proposed visit is some two months away but I need to know who would care to join us in order that I can reserve an early time slot at the Arboretum, i.e. 6pm or 6:30pm.

I thought that this time would be better for any children coming along as the visit would not be too late in finishing.

Secondly, the entrance money & coach fare will NOT be needed until the end of November.

When I received the details of this Event I wondered if any of you would be interested in coming along. I will now do my best to provide a brief description of what our visit will include: -

This "Illuminated Walk" is approximately 1 mile in length, along paths that are suitable for wheel­chair users and provide easy-walking. I believe the walk takes approximately 1 hour to complete.

We will journey down a torch-lit avenue, stopping to experiment with the" shadow wall" and have a go at creating Morse code with colourful LEDs.

The path will then lead through Votive Woods where you will be able to make your own contribution to the displays.

Our walk will finish with a stunning tribute across the iconic Armed Forces Memorial.

Inside the buildings there will be many displays to see and refreshments will also be available.

For those of you wishing to come along our Whittles coach will be parked on our Church car park and ready to leave by 4pm. I believe we should reach the Arboretum by 5:30pm.

If anyone wishes to reserve a wheel-chair, which is free of charge, please let me know when booking your place.

Discounted Entrance Fees:- Seniors & Adults  £8-00      Children (under 16) £5-00
Coach Fare                         ditto                   £15-00    ditto                       £10-00

Hopefully I may be able to reduce the coach fare once I know how many are coming along.
Please let me know by Remembrance Sunday. 11* November if vou wish to join us.
I apologise for the length of this letter but I do took forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely, lliffe.
