Visit to Horwich

Thu, May 1st 2014 at 12:00 am- Fri, May 2nd 2014 - 12:00 am

On 1st May 2014 6 members from RCO Douglas (President Mike Priest, VP Kevin Kneen, Howard Callow, Mark Pearce and Bob Dowty Senior and Junior) and RCO Rushen & Western Mann President John Quaye travelled to Horwich.


On arrival at Heysham the IOM party were greeted by Horwich members who took them directly to lunch at the Crown. After an excellent meal, the group were transported to the top of Winter Hill where a short memorial service was held for those who lost their lives 56 years ago.

In the evening the IOM members were guests of RCO Horwich at their Charter Night which was a fantastic event as usual.

After a visit to the legendary Greeley's pie shop the next morning, the group were returned to heysham for the journey home.
