A HUGE thank you to Judy and her team at People & the DALES for another fabulous day in the Yorkshire Dales. Seven of us from St. Augustine's Centre were very lucky to be given the opportunity to go to Grassington for their 10th birthday celebrations. There were presentations in the village hall, an amazing lunch provided by a local group, followed by a lovely walk through the hay meadows. As always everyone has a wonderful time - made even better by the warm, sunny weather! Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to be involved!
