Join us at the seaside for our Summer Event

We’re off to the seaside for our YHACS Summer Members’ Event. It is being hosted by Grimsby, Cleethorpes and District Civic Society at the Memorial Hall in Grimsby Road, Cleethorpes, from 1pm to 4pm on Saturday 13th July. The venue has parking and is within easy walking distance of Cleethorpes railway station.

Those who fancy travelling over on the Friday can join us for fish and chips at Papa’s on Cleethorpes Pier . The restaurant also caters for those who prefer meat and for vegans. It has a bar and wonderful views along the Humber estuary – idyllic on a beautiful summer’s evening (which we’ve booked with the Met Office by the way!).

Also on Friday, the Civic Society is organising a walk around The Kasbah, the Grimsby Docks Regeneration Project, at 1pm.

On Saturday morning there will be a guided walk around Cleethorpes’ Blue Plaques starting at 10am and finishing in time for you to have lunch at one of the town’s many cafes and pubs before the meeting starts.

Guest speakers at the main meeting will include Paul Fenwick, who will recount the extraordinary story of the Butterfly Bombs dropped on Grimsby in the Second World War, and Emma Lindgard, who will tell us about some of the historical aspects of Cleethorpes. Ian Harvey, Director of Civic Voice, will also be speaking.

There will be the usual round-up of YHACS news and a chance to hear from other societies in our Just A Minute slot. I apologise that we ran out of time for this at our January meeting but we’ll definitely make time for it in July. One of the most positive aspects of our meetings is sharing ideas and good practice.

The Kingsway Hotel on the seafront at Cleethorpes has offered us a deal for the Friday night if you mention YHACS. A double room with breakfast is £115, without breakfast £90. A single with breakfast is £90, without £75. Sea view rooms are available at £140 or £115, room only.
