Somme Visit May 2016

Head Wench Sue and Wench Suzanna are in France at the moment finalising a few things for the Wenches Sponsored walk in September this year. Arriving yesterday they had a quick stop in Belgium to deliver some of the Wenches In Trenches – Roses Of No Mans Land books to The Grenadier Bookshop in Ypres. So if you are passing the bookshop pop in for a copy. You can also buy them direct from us for £6 +p&p, just drop us an email to order your copy.

Sue and Suzanna then made their way down to France. After a good nights sleep they headed up to Lochnagar Crater to see the team of Friends Of Lochnagar as they are giving the grounds a good clear up ready for the summer visitors. Lots of hedge cutting and grass trimming as well as a few repairs along the duckboards that surround the crater.
A couple of the volunteers are also giving the Wenches bench a spruce up. Sanding it down ready for a coat of protective varnish. Everyone is very busy this weekend.

After an afternoon catching up with Julie and David Thomson who run Number 56, a lovely B&B in La Boiselle and the base for this years walk, Sue and Suzanna head back to their accommodation for some food and an early night.
Tomorrow they are being interviewed for Meridian ITV at Lochnagar Crater.
