Informstion about a cider day at The Blue Bell in Annan

CAMRA Cultural and Historic Saturday Stroll-All welcome, non-members friends and pets.

On Saturday May 25th the local sub-branch of CAMRA is presenting the Farmer`s Inn at Clarencefield with their award as area winner for Dumfriesshire - Pub of The Year 2019. The presentation takes place at 1pm. As a prelude there is a planned walk to Burns` Brow Well, the Savings Bank Museum and Ruthwell Church to see the impressive Ruthwell Cross. Walk length is around 3.5 miles and is mainly tracks and minor roads with a short section on a wooded path. The walk begins at 9:35am as bus 79 arrives in Clarencefield, near the Farmers from both Dumfries and Annan. The walk leader is Alan Gass and anyone going on one of his rambles obviously does so at their own risk! Lunch may be taken at the Farmer`s and there are hourly buses back to Dumfries or onward to Annan (Blue Bell – 16 minutes). Anyone interested in this social event should register an interest with Alan Gass by moc.tenretnitb@ssag.nala,liame or by text to 07741029225. Further walk details are available.
