by Kevin on 19 Aug 19 in Social
20 March 2021 - 21 March 2021
Celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Windsor Forest TR club.
At De Vere Beaumont Estate
Burfield Road, Old Windsor, Berkshire SL4 2JJ
Organised by: Kevin & Pat Warwick
This special landmark deserves special recognition, so we are organising a weekend of events in the area that inspired the club's name, Windsor Forest.
You are welcome to attend any or all of the stages as you wish.
Stage 1: The weekend starts with a countryside run that (very loosely) follows part of King John's "3 castles" route to Windsor for the signing of the Magna Carta. We will take in Windsor Forest & Great Park, along with some memorable photo opportunities at start / end of the run.
*If you use Google Maps, you can download the route here: https://goo.gl/maps/acKLCQY2Sow81cG98
Stage 2: Lunch at the Toby Carvery in Old Windsor
Stage 3: A celebration dinner on Saturday night at the De Vere Beaumont Estate in Old Windsor. To help us celebrate in style, plan to dress in Black Tie or suit & tie and posh frocks. Dinner is a 3-course set menu in a private dining room with music and some other entertainment. Teas and coffees are included with dinner and there are a wide choice of beers, wines and spirits available to purchase.
Stage 4: An overnight stay at the De Vere on Saturday night. The De Vere Beaumont Estate is quite impressive and is located in 42 acres of parkland in Old Windsor. We plan to complete the run, phot shoots and lunch then check-in at the hotel by mid-to-late afternoon to give you a few hours to do as you please. You may want to make use of the pool and gym facilities, perhaps take a 10 minute stroll to the Magna Carta site, or simply unwind in your room or at the bar!
Stage 5: After a leisurely breakfast at the hotel on Sunday, we will depart for home. *We may or may not plan a run home on Sunday, dependent on interest levels.
The event will include mementos handed out for each car plus free tea / coffee / pastries for breakfast at the start of the run.
The prices for dinner and/or accommodation at the De Vere Estate shown in the registration details are indicative only. These prices may fluctuate.
The event was originally scheduled for May 2020 but was postponed for one year due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
We visited the hotel to look around the facilities in October 2019 and February 2020 and were very impressed. Here are some notes on the room types that we saw:
- The Standard Guest rooms are very nicely decorated and furnished, but you should be aware that they are a 4-5 minute walk from the reception, restaurant, bar and our private dining room in the White House area.
- The White House and Wessex Deluxe rooms are larger and closer to everything.
- The White House suites are expensive, but they are VERY nice!
Please feel free to contact Kevin or Pat at 07736 103177 or email email@example.com.
Update - we have 44 people registered to attend the Run and 35 for dinner as of mid-February 2020.
