Thursday 14/4/16 Hart Civic Day

Today with other members of the “Chain Gang” we attended the chairman of Hart’s Civic Day.

Our  first visit of the day was to Stratfield Saye House where we were greeted by The Duke of Wellington. After a tour of the house we also went to see the First Duke’s Funeral Carriage, a magnificent vehicle which was pulled by 12 black shire horses.We then visited The Royal School of Engneering at Gibralter Barracks, Minley, where we watched various displays and had lunch.

Our last visit of the day was to The Basingstoke Canal where we had a trip on the John Pinkerton 2. A very enjoyable day when one of our neighbours could showcase their District.
