Out and about in Rugby


IMG_1809Along with Keith and Ann (nb Oakfield) and Gary and Della (nb Muleless) we decided to walk into Rugby town centre and have lunch at Wetherspoons. As you can see some people just don’t like having their picture taken.

IMG_1832As always we had a good lunch and a good old natter. Keith even bought Ann a full bottle of Prosecco to have with her lunch, how nice of him..Mind you we did help her to drink it …Cheers Keith !

IMG_1838It was then into The Clock towers shopping centre for some retail therapy . We thought the clock was going to do something special when it reached 4 o clock, but we were a bit disapointed as it did nothing.

IMG_1839I wouldn’t want to meet the bird that laid this egg.

IMG_1842They certainly look after their trees at this park in Rugby. Several of the trees have scarves to keep them warm in all this cold weather. How sweet.

The park is called Caldecott Park is located in the town centre next to the Town Hall in Evreux Way Rugby.
It was initially established for the people of Rugby in 1904. Two years later Rugby Urban District Council purchased the land.
The park is around 10 acres in size and contains a variety of formal and informal sports facilities, a number of flowerbeds, and formal lawn areas.
This recreational area has become famous for its award winning floral displays and is enjoyed and well loved by the residents of Rugby and visitors to the town.
Rugby Borough Council was awarded nearly £1,000,000 by the Heritage Lottery Fund to undertake a major restoration programme of the park. Work started in May 2008 and completed in early 2009.
Caldecott Park is a designated Queen Elizabeth II Field.

A lovely park and well worth a visit if you are in the area. Although it is full of colour now apparently in the Summer it really looks very special.
