Yorkshire September 2016 Meeting Review
  • Date: September 2016

We returned to Thorpe Park after not holding a meeting here for a few years. We were welcomed with open arms. This was James's first meeting that he was fully in charge of, from finding the venue to running the meeting. It is fantastic to see James' confidence grow after being our scholarship last year to now being a member of the committee & running an event.
