Coore Arms

Because of the uncertainty of the weather in March, remember Wentworth last year, there was no run planned but just a pub lunch.

Fortunately the weather was fine but the nearby bridge over the river was closed due to flooding and there were reports of 

other areas flooded. Everybody made it who had booked and we enjoyed a good lunch, we will be back again.

 

 

Club Run - Himalayan Gardens 26th May

Meet 10.00am at the 'Wild Swan', Main Street, Minskip, Boroughbridge, YO51 9JF. for coffee/tea/biscuits.

Car parks at front and rear of pub. Depart 10.30/10.45am

The plan is to arrive for 12 noon picnic in reserved area of the grassed car park.

There is also an on site cafe. After lunch members can visit the gardens and sculptures.

We will benefit from the group rate price of £8 per head (Normal price for May is £10 per person).

We have to pre-book and pre-pay 21 days in advance to get this rate, so I propose a cut off date for members

to pay me by 1st May with cheques payable to Harrogate MG Club. Members have to appreciate that this is a

Bank Holiday and a busy time for the gardens and it may be necessary to limit the party size.

Their website for members to look at is www.himalayangarden.com  

As the name suggests the gardens are hilly in places. Although the paths are well

defined they are steep in places and after rain can be slippery.

Therefore members should wear appropriate foot wear.

The after show meal will be at The Crown in Pateley Bridge. It has new owners, from Wildings café,
