Real Ale Tour of Birmingham - 4th December 2014


For our December Social meeting the Chairman took a thirsty bunch of SLK'ers up to Birmingham on the train (well, it avoids the drink and drive problem!).

Cologne International Trip - 9th to 12th October 2014

Eleven flew to Cologne in two waves to sample German beer, eat more pork that was good for us, play some cards, “get into” a party, try out the buses and the trains go up a mountain in a cog railway and travel down the Rhine in a boat. Oh, and drink more beer. And then some more.
Dudley Canal Tunnel boat trip - 7th August 2014

A large contingent went off to Dudley to sample the Canal Tunnel from the inside. Some even had a go at 'legging' ... which we discovered was very knackering!
Birdlip Run - 27th July 2014

The Annual Birdlip run toured out to the Cotswolds and back, sampling a great breakfast, a stop at the Lavender Farm, a 'swift one' stop before the usual picnic lunch atop Cleeve Hill. The afternoon took a route via Birdlip Hill and out to cream tea in Tewkesbury.
