A coach-load of us headed up to Killerton House near Exeter on Monday for a jolly! A rather wet jolly, but a jolly nonetheless.
Our first port of call was the café, for a delicious lunch.
We looked around the displays of clothing from the National Trust’s collection, all arranged by colour.
We heard a talk from Shelley Tobin, one of the Killerton volunteers, centered around the colour green. Shelley is a dress historian and is also an assistant curator at the Royal Albert Memorial Museum in Exeter, so she knows her stuff. Not only that, but she’s President of her local WI as well!
After the talk, some of us looked around the house while others braved the rain and walked around the grounds.
Of course we still made time for cake and coffee.
And a little retail therapy before leaving.
Thanks so much to Kathy for organising the day. And to all of our Crowlas & Ludgvan members for their hard work fundraising all year so that we could go to Killerton!
