EUC members joined a group of 24 people to visit Slovenia for an 8 day holiday, starting 0n 29th June. The group stayed at a hotel on the shore of Lake Bled, which is a very attractive resort these days. We saw many delightful scenic attractions in this small country, which is 1/6 the size of the UK with a population of 2 million. Finally, we visited Ljubljana the thriving capital of Slovenia before returning to the UK.
The Exeter University Club June Outing & Reunion was very successful. We attracted 30 EUC members to take part from our branches. On Tuesday 12th members visited NT locations in the Yeovil area, with the Tintinhull Gardens being most popular. On Wednesday 13th we visited Montacute House followed by Sherborne on Thursday 14th. Members stayed at the Yeovil Court Hotel during the 3 day event, and appreciated the quality of the food and accommodation.

A small group of EUC members joined a larger group travelling to the Caribbean for a 17 day holiday. The weather in the Caribbean was great as we visited Barbados, St Lucia, Antigua and St Kitts before sailing on to the Azores and then back to Southampton. Our ship, the Fred Olsen Braemar, was very friendly and we really enjoyed the holiday despite the time at sea. Our return to Southampton was marked by a massive drop in temperature due to the return of the ‘Beast from the East’. We shivered for 10 minutes as we walked ashore.
In 2017 EUC enjoyed 2 excellent holidays in Europe. The first was to Alberbello in Puglia, Italy where we saw the famous Trulli dwellings, the olive trees and that wonderful scenery. The second was to the Dordogne in France where we saw amazing chateaux, the Lascaux caves, the Cro-Magnon Shelter, the Gouffre de Padirac, and La Roque-Gagneac. See our holidays page for some of the personal memories.
The 2017 EUC Annual Outing & Reunion was held from Tuesday 27th to Thursday 29th June. We attracted 41 members to this event which featured visits to Rousham Gardens, Canons Ashby NT and Broughton Castle. Many of our members stayed 2 or 3 nights in the attractive Holt Hotel, 9 miles south of Banbury. The event was a super Exeter University Club event and was definitely worth the effort required to arrange it. Let’s hope that our EUC members will continue to support these annual events.
