After a discussion at at one of the York Reunion Group monthly meetings it was suggested by a few ex-249 (FARELF) members that an informal reunion be held in 2018. Further debate then decided on the weekend 15th to 17th June 2018 in Harrogate, North Yorkshire.  
  The venue will be St Robert's Club (opposite St Robert's Catholic Church), 5a Robert Street, Harrogate. HG1 1HP  
  Eddie Jones ( and John Davis ( are organizing the reunion.  
  Saturday 1900hrs - Meet at St Robert's Club where there will be drinks, a buffet and a raffle, cost to be in the region of £12.00/£14.00 depending on numbers attending.  
  All ex-249ers, wives, family and/or guests are welcome.  
  People to source their own accommodation. There are all sorts of places and prices available.  
  If you wish to attend either: 1 - If you are on Facebook go to the dedicated 249/18 Sigs page and fill in the poll, or 2 - email John or Eddie (Taff) the numbers in your party.  
For those intending to make a weekend of it Eddie suggests meeting at Weatherspoons by the Baths and Spa on the Friday evening for a few beers.
