After all the beautiful weather that we’ve had recently, what did I wake up to on April 2nd…rain!
We met at Millbrook Garden Centre in Monmouth for coffee and in some cases cake and buns, before starting off on our short but very scenic first Club event of the season.
By this time the weather looked fine and our eight ‘historic’ and five ‘moderns’ headed off over Trelleck and through Devauden and with the hedges short and tidy, the views were wonderful.
Arriving at our destination , Millers Arms at Mathern everyone was soon seated and tucking into there very reasonably price lunch while watching a hailstorm, which proved to be the first of several.
From there it was just a stone’s throw for tea and cake at Chepstow Garden Centre.
We hadn’t travelled far, but I received some nice comments about the route and the pub which we had tried for the first time as a group and so with the first COG’s run of the season over, I hope the next seven are as successful.
