We were fortunate with relatively warm weather for our Fish and Chip Run to Whitby, this is our first run of the year and we had a record 57 members and friends take part. Most members turned up in their everyday cars but a few gave their MG’s an airing, new members Jim and Julia Little brought their very tidy MGF for its first outing with the club. The cars left the services at Durham to meet up with many more at Strikes Garden Centre in Stokesley to follow Reg Barretts picturesque route down the coast with it’s breath taking views of the N.E.
After parking up in Whitby, we congregated at the ‘Whalebones’ for a group photo before making our way down to Hadleys fish restaurant where we met up with many friends from South Yorkshire MG Club for a sumptuous fish and chip dinner with a generous helping of friendly banter. After dinner we had a wander round the town before setting off on the drive home. We all agreed it was a fabulous day and nice meeting up with lots of likeminded friends.
Thanks again to Reg and Babs for organising another great day and a fabulous and very interesting route via Staithes to Whitby.
