Trip to Sledmere House and Bridlington

 The Sykes family of Sledmere House in the Yorkshire Wolds welcome (throughout the year) people of a variety of interests. From April to December these interests encompass, Gardening, Nostalgia, Classic Cars, Music, Theatre, Country Activities and Food. But on Thursday 18th June they welcomed members of Otley Menís Forum and their wives. The beauty of the gardens and the surrounding countryside were enhanced by Sledmere House and its decorations; the library being a particular highlight. Very knowledgeable and enthusiastic ladies conducted tours of the premises that were viewed with delight by our members and friends. Unfortunately the time at Sledmere passed very quickly and after lunch we moved on to Bridlington. What a contrast!  Before we set off to return to Otley the following rhetorical question was asked on numerous occasions. Will this kind of resort survive?

We must again thank Brian Dexter for organising this trip which he did efficiently and most importantly, economically.


 This was the last event of our 2008- 2009 session, we start our 2009-2010 series of meetings on Thursday 10th September. We hope to be in Otley Civic Centre again but should that close we will probably be at Otley Rugby Union Football Club. A notice will be posted nearer the time when we have definite information about the Civic Centre.
