A visit to Yorkshire

The annual meeting of the North and East Yorkshire District was held in Hull.

I usually like to attend as the District Grand Master, R.Ill.Comp Neil Woodward is a long-time friend. Here is Neil with R.Ill.Comp. Chris Lewis.

A visit to Yorkshire It is usually Terry and I attending but for a change Sandra and I went up to Whitby for a long weekend and I left her on Saturday morning to pop down to Hull.

A visit to Yorkshire We enjoyed the usual excellent Yorkshire hospitality including Pork Pie on arrival with the morning coffee.

A quiet meeting as their Organist could not attend. You realise how quiet it is without music and emphasised how lucky we were in March to have Ill. Comp. John Gough come to our rescue.
