Lanton Farm Reunion

Former members of Ritson's held a reunion for the 50th anniversary of the camp at Lanton Farm near Wooler between the 3rd and 5th of July 2009.

During the weekend they visited the Group's headquarters and met up with friends who are now members of the Guild.

While in the headquarters former leader, Bob Robson read out a poem he had written to mark the occasion. You can read "Out to grass" by clicking here.

The reunion was organised by George Banks and Maldwyn Chapman and also involved Stuart Graham, David Chapman and John Harrison.

The reunion was featured in the Evening Chronicle in early June, which can be seen by clicking the Evening Chronicle's link at the bottom of this page.

More photos will be added as I have them.
