Our meetings have been well attended with a with range of subjects to interest members.

Our outing, in June, saw us enjoying a concert at Scarborough Spa followed by lunch. Some of our members also enjoyed helping Snainton WI to celebrate their centenary at an evening concert and an afternoon tea at Hackness Grange.
