There was a slight air that the best of the day had passed us by as we headed back to the Postal Museum for a coffee before continuing our day visiting the ‘Exhibition’. Our mood was soon revived on entering a world of ‘colour’ and ‘cheeriness’. Excellent information displays made it easy to read and absorb further history of our postal service.
The interactive points, proved enormous fun, especially amongst us more childlike adults within the group, including designing a self-image postage stamp. Our Chairman, joined in, ‘sorting’ the mail whilst travelling on a train simulator looking very much the part in his appropriate postal uniform. All too soon our visit came to an end at the Gift Shop with a gathering of the group before heading off.
Our next and final port of call for the day was The Castle Pub whereby arrangements had been made for the private use of the upstairs bar in order that we could all seat comfortably and enjoy our pre-ordered meals and drinks at the tables provided. The atmosphere was of laughter and chatter as people exchanged their experiences of the morning.
Not only had our journey up to London run smoothly but the return trip back to Edenbridge Town ran just as easily, a perfect end to a thoroughly enjoyable day.
