PEMBROKE Ladies Probus Club recently travelled to Devil’s Bridge for its annual summer trip.

The two hour journey was accompanied by lively chatter and a chance to enjoy the views from the very comfortable Edwards coach.

On arrival at their destination, the ladies headed to the Devil’s Bridge station café, where drinks and delicious cakes were on offer.

It was soon time to board the Vale of Rheidol steam train for an hour journey to Aberystwyth in the carriage, reserved for the Probus ladies.

However there was much laughter when Secretary Jill Ensom pointed out that the carriage had a third class sign and that the ladies should be in first class.

The scenery was spectacular being reminiscent in places of Switzerland with thick forests and a beautiful river meandering below. The journey passed all too quickly and the train arrived at its destination.

At Aberystwyth there was opportunity to eat lunch and to spend a few hours browsing the shops, taking a stroll on the promenade, purchasing ice cream or just generally relaxing with friends.

Several of the ladies enjoyed watching a concert by a local school choir performing in a hall on the sea front while others explored further afield.

The general consensus was that it was a most enjoyable day and Vice President Rita Evans was thanked for organising the trip. Thanks were also given to the coach driver Barney for his support and safe driving.

The next meeting will be on August 16 at the Cleddau Bridge Hotel when a Trading Standards Officer will talk about Your Shopping Rights.
