Saturday August 19th - we will meet up with the bus at 10.30 at the Hayfield car park and head for the new Mackenzie’s Farm shop and cafe in Cunningsburgh to sample their lovely cakes for our morning coffee stop, and have a browse around the shop. After that we will have a run around the South end then lunch in the Bigton Hall. Please make your choices from the menu, and either phone Joy on 01595 696 491 or email Joy at by Tuesday 15th August.
