March 12th 12.30pm Lunch at ‘Carriages’ restaurant 87-89, The High Street, Knaresborough.
Carriages, located in a listed “olde worlde” building, is now owned by William & Victoria’s of Cold Bath Road, where we have enjoyed several good lunches over the past few years. This new venture offers an interesting British & European menu to suit all tastes and appetites. 2 courses for £10, or 3 courses for £14. The nearest bus stop is at the bottom of the High Street.
Please reserve your place by contacting Tania Brightmore on 01423 862290 by Saturday, 9th March in this case. Please book early, as numbers are rising. If you are subsequently unable to attend, please contact the organiser in fairness to the restaurant and other members.
February 28th Visit to Tropical Land, Roundhay Park, Leeds
There is no organised a tour so we can go around at leisure, have a tea/coffee when we like. There is a lot to see, trekking through rainforests and deserts and the different animals to be found there – we all love a meerkat. There is also a butterfly house. The Tropical World conservatory Cafe overlooks the Canal Gardens where we can stop for refreshments. The Coach will depart from York Place, Knaresborough at 9.45 am and Harrogate Library 10.00 am. Leaving Leeds about 3.00 pm for the return journey.
February 12th 12.30pm Lunch at Lucia’s 3 Ripon Road, Harrogate
This was a change of venue, because we had been advised that ‘the Potting Shed’ had closed. Lunch deal: 1 Main Course, 1 drink and 1 hot drink for £9.99 per person, or your choice from the a la carte menu.
Please book early, as numbers are rising. If you are subsequently unable to attend, please contact the organiser in fairness to the restaurant and other members.
January 24th 2-4pm Forum Meeting ‘Watch out!’ St Paul’s Church, Victoria Avenue (opposite Harrogate library)
We had a speaker from the Trading Standards Investigation and Safeguarding Office come to speak to us about their findings and to advise us on what scams etc are currently prevalent. This part of the Trading Standards Department will see a criminal act taken to court and present evidence against the offender. I think we were surprised at what is going on in our own community and now feel more able to ‘Watch Out’ for ourselves.
Admission is £2 which includes refreshments and a raffle ticket.
January 8th 12.30pm Lunch at ‘Istanbul’, Victoria Avenue, opposite Waitrose Car Park exit
This restaurant is a firm favourite with our members, and is now under new management. We were made very welcome and had a lovely meal.
