Feilding Coach Trip 10 October 2018
Grey Power members assembled at 9.30am ready to leave for Friendly Feilding at 9.45am. Arriving at the Coach House Museum a delicious morning tea of date scones and a cuppa awaited us. Our host Caryl greeted us and introduced us to Feilding’s magnificent museum. The museum has an extensive historical collection spanning over 140 years which includes Maori waka, restored horse driven vehicles, Edwardian displays i.e. farming, vintage trucks and farm machinery plus the John Deere collection which is the largest display in the Southern Hemisphere. After we had completed our tour we were served a twocourse meal at the museum in Friendly Feilding style. Then we were off to Eric Clarke’s private movie theatre to view two movies, the first being “The Plank” which had everyone in fits of laughter, followed by “Trouble in Store” starring Norman Wisdom (a comedian of great recognition who has been knighted by the Queen) again the cinema was filled with laughter.
As the day in Feilding concluded we all settled back in the coach for our return journey home to Palmerston North, where we arrived about 4pm.
A great day was had by all and the question asked was “where are we going next”? Robyn and Tony gave us another successful “bus outing” – well done!! A.P.G.
