Days out with Ian Jarvis from Minchinhampton – a post from Ian.

Days out: January to September 2019


You might know me because I’ve mended your computer (I hope). Or you might know me from church. Or you might not know me at all! But my name is Ian Jarvis and I organise monthly coach trips from Minchinhampton, Box and Nailsworth to some interesting (again, I hope) and good-value destinations. Everyone is very welcome – in fact, it’s really a day out amongst friends.

We’ve got a great line-up for you this year – from town shopping to beautiful stately homes; from exciting tours round a car factory to a rose specialist nursery.

We really appreciate your support. These outings are great fun for Katie (my wife) and me, and they often offer a day out for people for whom, otherwise, these sorts of trips would be impossible. If you ever fancy anything that isn’t on the list, just drop me an email and I’ll research how feasible it might be.

As you’ll see, there are dates confirmed for many of the trips; a few others state the month but the exact date is yet to be fixed. We’ll keep you informed, with more detail to follow.

We promise a really friendly time, lots of help from Katie and me, and ALWAYS good weather*

*Apart from when it rains, etc.
