In September 2016, 41 of us - 15 Members, 14 Wives/Partners and 12 Guests (including some widows of former Members) - travelled to Yorkshire, staying in The St. George Hotel in Harrogate. Linked to below is a page on each day. The tour was led by Ray who did an excellent job, as always, assisted by Dilys, David & Rosemary, and coach driver Paul. The pace was gentle with there being a good mix of things-to-do and free time. Some people met-up in the evenings with friends or family who lived nearby. How did it go? It seemed that everyone enjoyed themselves and the convivial atmosphere produced by their companions.

At the Monthly Meeting on on 27.09.16, and also the President's Evening on 22.10.16 (E16o), Geoff L. kindly showed us the 'home video' he had produced on the trip. This was viewed with great pleasure and both reminded those who went on the trip about the trip and enabled those who did not go on the trip to see what we got up to.
