Our meeting on Wednesday welcomed representatives from the local groups who came together to run the annual bonfire. Following a lovely 2 course meal, our guest speaker, Rev. Chris Wilton gave an amusing preamble to the evenings real business. First a big vote of thanks should go to the staff and management of Monk Fryston Hall for their support for the evening and the lovely meal which was heavily subsidised. The main objective for the evening was the distribution of the proceeds of the bonfire night. Thirteen local groups benefited from the total of some £22,330.37 . This magnificent sum adds to the many previous years totalling in excess of £150,000 which has helped to sustain these many varied groups. Our efforts are now focused on the next bonfire and our forthcoming car boot season.
