Oxfordshire Area were recently invited to take part in the Capability Brown 300 Anniversary celebrations at Kirtlington Park on the 15th May 2016 , writes AC Karen Harvey .
There were 8 of us including some members we hadn’t seen for a long time, Kevin Merry with his pair of Friesians and his family and John Deacon driving June & George Colliers Haflinger also a new member James Scott Lee joined in, this was his first drive. It was also good to see members from Berks, Sue Cooper and Sally & Danny Marshall. Other members were Anne Tebbs & Gina Phipps and Peter and Gaye Kyle, myself & Jenny Smith.
We set out on the Parkland route which took us up to the House for a small parade & photo shoot then round past the main polo ground before heading off to go round the lake with wonderful views of the House, we returned back through the polo grounds before finishing for another photo session in front of the House & lots of visitors. It was lovely not to have to go on any public roads.
Peter Kyle`s comment was ` Great drive and good fun. Excellent cakes ! Thank you Karen.`
