A Yorkshire Church Family Day Out 2016
Below is an email I recently received from Alan Kendall my RPO. Hopefully all Pilots will be attending this event and we hope that as many of you as possible come along to what will be a fantastic day of fun and fellowship for all ages! If you could let me know if you are interested I can get back to Alan with an idea of numbers.

My name is Alan Kendall and I am the Regional Pilot Officer for Yorkshire. I have attended Pilots Big Days Out in the past, and always found them very enjoyable, but they are often a long journey for people in Yorkshire, therefore many people in Yorkshire don’t get to experience them. Therefore I have decided to organise a similar event for people in Yorkshire.
We are targeting Saturday 10th September 2016 at Flamingo Land. We have been in negotiation with Flamingo Land, and although the normal group rate is £25, we havebeen able to secure a price of £20 per person. This will include all the usual park facilities throughout the day, but in addition we will have URC activities, and group worship in the park at the end of the day. The purpose of this e-mail is to get an early indication of interest. We are very aware that people’s diaries quickly fill up, and although this date is still a full 12 months away, we are keen to get into people’s diaries, and get some idea of numbers. Please can you let me know (after obviously discussing with the church) if your church would be likely to attend, and if so, some idea of likely numbers. Obviously there is no commitment required at this stage, but before we make any financial commitment, we would like to know if this is attractive to church members.
This is of course open to all ages, and all people no matter how loosely they are associated with the church.
Any questions, please feel free to come back to me.
