Essie Summers Retirement Village Tour at Wigram Air Force Museum 

The girls love their gardens and the boys love their toys. So while the ladies had an outing to the Botanical Gardens the gentlemen headed for the Wigram Air Force Museum.

 The wonderful old machines of both peace and war looked imposing and evoked many memories in our residents, who recalled seeing these magnificent, achiness flying across the wide skies of Canterbury in their youth. Second only to toys on any boy’s agenda is a social event. So after touring the museum everybody repaired to the Hornby Working Men’s Club to tell tales of yesterday over a much –needed glass of gentleman’s tonic.
