  • Fellowship Weekend

    Isn’t it good and so important to occasionally take a few days out of our busy lives, forget everyday concerns and relax with friends?

    So this is exactly what Bradford West did and had a weekend of pure warmth - as regards both the fellowship and the weather (when sheltered from the wind!)

    We had a truly enjoyable time in the South Lakes, staying at the Newby Bridge Hotel. The trips out were all easily reached from there by coach.

    The visits were enjoyed by everyone - even those dubious beforehand!

    Stott Park Bobbin Mill deserves a special mention. It is the last surviving mill of its kind in the world! It has been perfectly restored by Mick Callaghan who previously worked at Bradford Industrial Museum. We were very impressed by everything on site and the visit was rounded off in the sunshine with refreshments especially provided for us by Andrea (Ron’s daughter), and her cousin, Sharon (MIck’s wife).

    We also visited: the Dock Museum in Barrow; the Lakeland Motor Museum with its 30,000 exhibits, Campbell Bluebird collection and the Lakeland Historic Car Club meeting in the car park; Bowness; Hays Garden Centre; had a trip on the Lakeside Steam Railway; and a ferry ride on the Windermere Lake Steamer.

    The weekend finished with a visit to Grasmere where we could enjoy the delightful village or take a walk on the surrounding fells.

    On behalf of us all, President Richard thanked Sandra and Ron who, with the help of Kathleen & Brian, and Allan & JAK Travel, organised this welcome and unforgettable weekend for us.
