DSC04951Come and join us on Sunday 7th July from 12 noon onwards for our Annual Picnic in the Oxford University Harcourt Arboretum at Nuneham Courtenay. We will meet again by the kozolec (Slovene hay rack).

Bring your own picnic, drinks, plates, cutlery, chairs, tables, blankets, balls — not to mention your children, grandchildren and friends. As usual among Slovenes, we encourage you to bring plenty to eat and drink and share it with everyone!

Children of all ages can take part in a fun drawing workshop with Nina Nemec, a Slovene graphic and fashion designer (see The pictures made by the children will be displayed on the hayrack, and each child can take his/her picture home.

The Arboretum is situated just south of Nuneham Courtenay on the A4074 road from Reading, eight miles south of Oxford. The postal code is OX44 9PX. From London it can be reached by the M40, exit 8, A40 to Oxford, then southwards round the Ring Road (A4142) on to the A4074 towards Reading. Website:
