Forays for 2017

JULY 29th 20th ANNIVERSARY LUNCH AT FOX AND HOUNDS, AINTHORPE…we celebrate our 20th Anniversary this year at the Annual Jolly…a very special occasion. For no other reason than to provide comfort to you all we meet for lunch at the excellent Fox and Hounds Inn in Ainthorpe. Menu details will be forthcoming BUT you should be aware that this fine hostel is but ten minutes walk from Danby Railway Station, on the beautiful Middlesbrough to Whitby line. If you wish to avail yourselves of this service please let me know and I will furnish you with details of train times. I can collect members at Danby Station, we live across the road, and transport to the Inn. Seating is booked for twenty but as always early indications of numbers would help greatly. Note the date, it seems a long way off, but time flies..
