North Yorkshire branch lunch

Members of the NYB at their April monthly meet and lunch held at the Engine Shed and Restaurant Pickering. Viewers will recognise Jim GUNN who after a absence of two years is now back to health and with us, though it would appear from a photograph that his jokes have put Ken Huxtable to sleep.
Good to see you back Jim.

Ken Turner.
