Welcome to the 2019 programme when we hope that we have included something of interest for everyone.

As we all know, the cost of living has gone up which means that the cost of our outings has also risen but we have kept costs as low as possible!

        Please note that all payments must be made by cheque and made payable to                              



Wednesday September 4:     Royal Landscape Heritage Tour     Tour the Royal Landscape including parts of Windsor Great Park normally reserved for the Royal Family’s private use and enjoy a visit to the Savill Garden in one beautifully designed day. Leaving Upminster at 8.30am we enjoy coffee at Windsor Farm Shop and then our Blue Badge Guide will take us on a drive that will include the famous Magna Carta meadows at Runnymede and the Golden Gates through which the Queen drives on her way to Royal Ascot. After time to buy lunch in Windsor we take an exclusive tour inside areas of Windsor Great Park to see The Village where members of the Royal household live and the Royal School built for their children. We take in the Guards Polo Club, savour the view of the Long Walk from the Copper Horse and end the tour with a visit to one of the greatest ornamental gardens in Britain, the Savill Garden. We leave for home at 4.45pm.

Cost: 51 - includes coach, guide and gratuities

The Board will be circulated at the June Lunch with payment in July


Wednesday December 4:          

        The outing for this date has now been arranged for a Christmas trip to Waddesdon Manor which is a National Trust property in the Chilterns.  We will leave Upminster about 10.00am to arrive for a festive lunch at 12.00noon. After lunch we tour the part of the house decorated with Christmas trees and decorations with Christmas music the theme for this year. After the house tour there is time to visit the large Christmas market, before seeing the light show once dusk has fallen and getting any refreshments you want. We will leave about 5.45pm to get back home around 7.30 to 8pm.  The final cost has yet to be calculated but if you are a not an NT member the cost will be a little more than for members. We expect the cost could be about 59 for non members. This includes lunch and entry to the decorated part of the house and grounds.


1.      Should any outing be oversubscribed we reserve the right to hold a ballot or, where possible, to run the outing on another day.

2.      Friends who are not members of Deyncourt Ladies and Upminster & District Probus Clubs are   welcome to join us on these outings as they have done in the past but if an outing is oversubscribed preference will be given to club members and their guest.
