Stokesley Bear goes to lunch
Stokesley Bears Presents

I have often wondered why Rebecca doesn't work in Stokesley on a Friday. On 22nd December I discovered why; there was nowhere to park! There was a market on in the main car park and other car parking places were full. We were trying to get to Chapters Deli, where we going for a staff meal. However, the roads around Chapters were blocked with cars trying to get out, get in or simply get around. We drove around Stokesley or rather sat in a game waiting for our turn to move. Rebecca was getting more and more annoyed at the lack of parking places, especially as we were late for the meal. I was worried that we wouldn't get any lunch. Fortunately the circuit staff and stewards waited for us before ordering.

Officially this was a circuit leadership team meeting but there was no agenda; instead presents were shared and there was lots of laughter. We enjoyed a similar meal together last year and it was good to get together with old friends and new, especially as we recently welcomed two new members to the circuit leadership team. We left the Deli with presents, smiles and full tummies; glad that we had made the effort to get together.
