Bucket List Trips

Life is what happens to you while you are busy making other plans. –John Lennon


Definition of “bucket list”
Noun, informal: A number of experiences or achievements that a person hopes to have or accomplish during their lifetime. Origin: early 21st century: from the phrase “kick the bucket” popularized by the 2007 movie The Bucket List. 

Since we introduced the “Bucket List” concept our members have organized a variety of different experiences about which they were enthusiastic and wanted to share with their fellow members. These include:

  • Billingsgate Fish Market
  • Clay-pigeon shooting
  • Cricket at the Oval
  • Vintage Sports Car Championship at Silverston
  • St Alban’s Cathedral guided tour
  • Whisky tasting evening
  • Haunted Harpenden
  • Visit to the National Archive
  • Mini Plant guided tour
  • Tour of Rothamsted Manor led by Professor Plumb
  • Guided Tour of the Newsprinters Broxbourne plant
  • Visit to the Foreman and Field salmon smoker in East London

No doubt as soon as conditions permit our members with the help of the Events sub-committee will arrange more such Bucket trips.

The Club has re-published (June 2020) a document containing its “GUIDELINES FOR ALL ACTIVITIES”. These apply to all activities organised by the club or its members. Click on this link to read the document
