Congratulations to Roger Goulden on becoming our new Chairman and to Hazel Goulden our new secretary.

Our thanks go to Harry Burrell who has served us for many years in the post of secretary but has now stood down from that role.

A worthy choice.


Club Run - Lunch at Dower House

Twenty seven members assembled at The Dower House for Sunday lunch.

We had the main dining room to ourselves.

The service was swift and efficient, the food was very good. This return visit was as good as the first.

Club Run - Otley 17th February

Roger Goulden has organised a day out in Otley

Meet at The Courthouse at 12.00 noon for coffee and an introduction to the

Courthouse. You can park in the car park behind - free on Sundays.

There will then be a guided walk around Otley.

Lunch is organised at The Mill, a short drive from the centre. They would appreciate a guide to your choice of lunch.

You can ‘pick and mix’ any of these options, just let Roger know which so he knows who to expect where.


Club Run - Coore Arms 17th March

Roger Illingworth has organised a Sunday lunch, we have to pre-order.

The pub is just off the A684 near Northallerton. DL7 0QP

Lunch is £10.50 for one course, £14.50 for two or £16.50 for three.


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.
