Harrogate Brigantes visited Harrogate Rotary Club, which is regarded as a 'Scatter' night!
This being January, the weather is likely to have a say in where we walk. If we have a bright, fine winter day then I’m suggesting an old favourite which never fails to satisfy. Starting at the car park at Buckden, we walk up to Cray, along the limestone escarpment to Yockenthwaite and then return along the river via Hubberhome. It’s just over five miles, with wonderful views. If the weather does not encourage a drive to upper Wharfedale then I’ll have a local walk in my back pocket of around the same length.
Were you not the finely-honed athletes I know you to be, I would suggest this would be the perfect way to shed the last few Christmas ounces. As it is I shall simply look forward, as usual, to your excellent company. Peter Wood
Needless to say - this was an excellent walk not to be missed
Our Speaker tonight was Mark Smith who shared with us his feelings of having had a double transplant (kidney and pancreas) in 2009.
Brigantes Rotary Club Christmas Party took place on Tuesday and was attended by 54 Rotarians and guests. Those attending were greeted with a drink’s reception, followed by the President’s Welcome. A Christmas meal followed with a Loyal Toast by David Hayes.
Catalysts donated £250 to the St Peters “Feed the Homeless project” to celebrate the Christmas festivities.
This evening’s presentation was by Andrea Lascelles which was entitled, ‘Traditional Chinese Medicine.’ (Go Well Restore and Rebalance)
Our walk today highlighted the beautiful Nidderdale scenery, being viewed in excellent weather conditions, which allowed sight of Lead Smelt Mining and ruins, some 200 years ago.
The Quiz Night was organised by Kelvin Burkinshaw who encouraged four excellent teams to take part in this challenge!
