Thread Name: Whitby. Was it always in August?
Subject: RE: Whitby. Was it always in August?
I wrote up some of my memories for Sally who is compiling the book. I am glad Malcolm (as well as myself) remembers the story of the butterfly and the eating contest - though I thought it was the Seaman's Mission where he was catching the butterfly.

Two of the Yorkshire Lancashire events were a race up the Abbey Steps - won by Rob Lennox - and a race around the harbour pubs - having a half in each.
