Grassington Over 70s Committee disbands
9:00am Sunday 20th October 2013 in News
The Grassington Over 70s Committee has disbanded.
The group – which has provided free events for the older people of the district for more than 60 years – held its final lunch at Grassington Town Hall.
Chairman Muriel Hargraves, told guests the decision to disband had been taken because of a diminishing number of volunteers.
She outlined the various events which had taken place over the years, including trips, teas and gatherings and thanked the many volunteers, both past and present, who had worked so hard.
In particular, she mentioned the dedication of treasurer Jean Rowley and secretary Judith Ariss.
“It has been a team effort and a pleasure to work with everyone concerned,” she added.
