This year for the Presidents Run we will be paying a visit to the Houston Mill Museum in Broughshane, with tea/coffee and scones (curtesy of the EAOVC President Derek Clark) at the Misty Burn on the way to Broughshane.
Afterwards there will be time to browse this picturesque village. Broughshane is known as the 'Garden Village of Ulster' with the motto 'People, Plants and Pride growing Together'. The village has won Ulster in Bloom, Britain in Bloom and Entente Florale (Europe in Bloom). In 2007 and again in 2012 the village won 'Champion of Champions' award in the Britain in Bloom competition. It has also won the All Ireland Tidy Town Award.
Not content with one museum visit, for the afternoon Derek has arrange a visit to the War Years Remembered Exhibition currently running in the Dennision Industrial Park, Ballyclare. This will be a guided tour of the collection which includes a wide selection of memorabilia from both world wars. An exhibition not to be missed.
Finishing the day will be a meal at the Colinview Restaurant at the Ballyclare Golf Club. Dinner will be served at around 5pm.
The cost for the day is £21 per person. The fee includes Tea/Coffee and Scones, as well as the tour and dinner at the Colinview Restaurant. It does not include a lunch, so feel free to bring a picnic or try the hospitality in this beaotiful village.
Again I think Derek has pushed the boat out to make what looks like an exceptional day
