Club Night - Call My Bluff

George held another of his infamous quizzes, with words nobody has heard of and probably never will again.

Thanks to Roger and Val for helping.


Pub Night - Smiths Arms, Beckwithshaw

A pub we have not visited for a long while.

They made us very welcome and because we had pre-ordered the service was very efficient.


Club Run - Moors, Mills, Fish & Chips

We met for coffee at the Millstones before departing on a 30 mile run to Colne and Bannys.

The route was on mainly ‘A’ roads because of the time of year and uncertainty regarding the weather.

Most members enjoyed fish and chips and after lunch many went into Boundary Mills for some retail therapy.

We managed to avoid the ‘Beast from the East’ by a few days and actually had some decent weather.
