Rotary International District 1020 Conference 2016


We have a varied and interesting programme for you, with some fascinating subjects and speakers. These include Sir Chay Blyth, the first person to sail single-handed non-stop westwards around the world, and a speaker from the famous Betty's tearoom, which many of us will be frequenting during our time in Harrogate.
