Default GTG - Belgium WW1 Battlefields 20th/21st May 2017

Having spoken to MissyD and others I would like to propose a GTG to Ieper (Ypres) to visit various WWI battlefields next April.

Ieper is 75 minutes drive from Calais by motorway/A roads.

Possible timetable for a day event is to leave Folkestone around 8 am (Eurotunnel) and returning from Calais around 10.30 pm into Folkestone.

So travel to meet for coffee around 11.00 am at Sanctuary Wood - café + site of trenches
Lunch at café at Hooge Crater Museum
Afternoon visit to Flanders Fields Museum, Ieper (Ypres)
early evening meal in Ypres
8 pm - Last Post Ceremony at Menin Gate, Ypres
8.30 departure back to UK to catch 10.20 departure to Folkestone

(People can also arrive Friday and/or stay Saturday night - Ieper is a friendly town with lots of English/English descendants living there).

Living in Kent, am happy to offer 3 car share places - but a nice easy drive!

If there is an interest I will post more specific details.
