Edward and Gill organised a trip up North for us all in September, staying the first 2 nights in Matlock, then 2 nights at the Forest of Vale Pickering.
Day 1: We drove to the Chatworth farm shop and then onto Castleton for a couple of hours to explore the area and have lunch.
We then travelled to Derwent Reservoir, several walked up to the dam wall which was used for the final preparations of the famous Dam busters raids on the RUHR valley by 617 squadron led by Guy Gibson VC
Day 2: A visit to the Heights of Abraham at Matlock Bath, lots of things to explore the history of Abraham, a great place to visit with breath-taking views. After lunch Edward took the lead to the roads of the strines before heading to Pickering Yorkshire.
Day 3: A free day to explore the area, some took the train into Whitby, we drove across the Yorkshire moor to Whitby and on the return journey we visited the filming location of Heartbeat.
Day 4: We visited the Mathewson's old premises at Thornton Le Dale before everyone making there journey home.
It was a great success, everyone enjoyed the trip, lovely scenery and great driving roads and it was well organised by Edward and Gill, Thank you

We went to Cornwall air ambulance, Newquay to present the charity with the money we had raised over the pass year.
The helicopter was in the compound, which was great we could go and meet the crew and pilot , it was very interesting to hear their stories and dedication to the job in all weathers and challenging conditions they have to go out. Everyone made us welcome and we could take lots of photos.
