Wetherby’s Old Men’s Parliament celebrated Yorkshire Day at the Garden of Rest last Thursday.

The Shadows Guitar Club entertained crowds and the group provided tea and cakes and sandwiches to a steady stream of visitors, including a regular from South Africa.

A giant pork pie was provided by Andrews Butchers and mushy peas, pickles and sauces were donated by Morrisons via their customer champion.

Spokesman Ian Leadley said: “Thanks to the generosity of the people who provided the food, raffle prizes and Bric-a-Brac items we had a splendid concert in aid of Harrogate District Hospital A & E Department.

“The cashing up started with a very generous donation from Wetherby Hand Car Wash & Valeting and the total raised is £587.

“The final thank you must, of course, go to everybody in Wetherby who bought a raffle ticket or some bric-a-brac or just chucked some change into a bucket.”
