Moor Monkton Marchers

Meeting up on the second Sunday of each month, the Marchers undertake a shortish walk, regardless of the weather and then retire to a hostelry for lunch.

The March walk was a great success. Starting from Wetherby, we enjoyed a circular route taking in Linton and Sicklinghall (and the ubiquitous pub lunch at Scotts Arms) then back via Stockeld Park and the old railway line. Bright sunshine and lively banter was the order of the day.

The April walk was a fine day out at Kirkham Abbey with brilliant, if unseasonable, weather. Thanks to Jackie and Dave for arranging.

A rare picture of us actually walking!

What a splendid evening Janet and Bob gave us on Thursday 30th November. We were not sure what to expect but it was extremely interesting.

We were unable to complete the Plant supports but those who want to finish can ring Janet or Bob on 738549 and arrange to do so. I will certainly be going in the next couple of weeks.

For those unable to attend, these plant supports look so good in a garden and Janet has some to sell at £18 each just give her a ring.

Our Christmas Lunch will be at the Anchor Whixley on Thursday 14th December, We are booked for a 12.30pm start so if you can be there before 12.15 then that will be good and we should miss the 1pm diners. The menu on offer is a carvery with Turkey, a vegetarian dish and a fish dish together with 4 or 5 other options. The puddings are varied but of course these will include Christmas pudding. The cost is £8.95 for a main and £3.95 for dessert. Should you wish to join us then please contact either Sally or myself before our next meeting on 7th Dec.

Our next meeting will be Sally and myself making Christmas decorations with material from your garden, please join us we hope to have a raffle at this meeting.
