Thornensians RUFC


At last, a little bit of freedom! 19 Vans (16 Yorkshire, 3 East Midlands) arrived at the Thornensians RUFC in Thorne, North Yorkshire.

It was great to see a number of old faces once again, and welcome some new members on their first Temporary Campsite. Helena Smith from Yorkshire Area and Glenda & Steve Cope from East Midlands made their first appearances with the MCC. A very warm welcome to you all.

The Temporary Campsite was hosted by, the familiar to most, Dave and Sue Wright

Unusually for Yorkshire the weather was brilliant sunshine all weekend

Saturday saw most people heading out and about the town. Some via the canal, but most directly into town to find the cafes and pubs. Who can blame them on such a hot day. Some managed to sniff out a good deal on lunch in the Canal Inn. Other places of interest are the War Graves in the old cemetery, the mot and bailey castle, the memorial park with miniature railway.

Late Saturday afternoon, we were treated to some cake and scones from our hosts, followed by some free wine and beer from Alan and Elsie Stead to celebrate his 80th birthday.
One and half years late!
Happy birhday Alan

Following on from that we had a quiz for MENSA members. Needless to say none of us passed, and we look forward to Julie’s quizes in the future. But thank you Dave for putting it on.
Sunday saw some of us have Sunday lunch in the club house and a late departure.

The next weekend is Whitby. Please consider starting back with your hobby and come along and enjoy the company once more.
