Ayton Old Scholars' Summer 2005 Reunion was held over the weekend of 25th and 26th June at the Whinstone Country Club, Bistro, and Caravan Park for the sixth year. The weather was kind - a storm forecast for Friday did not materialise, it was a great weekend and a very good turnout.
The weekend started with arrivals on Thursday 23rd followed by many more on Friday and by the majority during Saturday, with many more Sunday arrivals - who had come for Meeting, lunch and the AGM. Over 90 were fed on Saturday evening and around 70 on Sunday prior to the AGM. An excellent turnout and all enjoyed themselves, wall to wall reminiscences.
The camping area was as found last year, with hardstandings for caravans and motorcaravans, and plenty of grass area for tents. Luckily, the rain which devastated Helmsley and other parts of North Yorkshire did not affect the Great Ayton and Stokesley area, so the grass was well dried out. The unintentional pond which appeared last year has now been turned into an ornamental pond; very attractive.
