In the past we have enjoyed many excellent outings to famous gardens, county shows, seed companies etc.
Why not book one of this year's trips.  They offer an interesting day out, are good value for money and you can make new friends. 
Mersea Islanders can leave their cars at home - there's no need to drive into Colchester and park.
