Events in 2018

71st Annual Charter Dinner

This was the first event in President Dot’s year. It was held on Friday May 4th at Ramside Hall Hotel. Friends, relatives and members of other clubs joined us for a delicious meal and evening of friendship and fun. We were entertained and informed by Sally a representative from Beamish Museum. She showed a fascinating powerpoint presentation on the museum’s work to create a 1950s town within the museum’s complex. This inspired many attending the event to visit the musuem and observe the progress of the project.
