A Grand Day Out

A Grand Day Out is a trip out that doesn't fit into any of the other groups' activities. It has become a regular group – an informal day outing to some easily accessible regional attraction.

The trips are open to all members to take part in.

The first outing was a trip on the Settle to Carlisle railway. We have also visited the Barbara Hepworth Museum in Wakefield, The Deep in Hull, Morecambe, and the Yorkshire rhubarb triangle, among other places.
