Halifax Visit 2011

The Society was delighted to welcome 30 friends from Aachen on 31 July for the biennial visit.

A full week of visits had been arranged including Leeds city centre and the Royal Armouries, Whitby and the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, a civic reception in the Town Hall, Harrogate and Theakston’s Brewery in Masham and local attractions in Halifax and Hebden Bridge.

Just as important was the time together with old and new friends especially at the Welcome Party at Siddal ARLFC and the Farewell Dinner at The Works in Sowerby Bridge which was joined by the Mayor and Mayoress of Calderdale. It was a splendid week together with something for all interests that was greatly enjoyed by visitors and hosts alike.
