Eleven members and two friends were made most welcome with coffee in the well used community centre in Grewelthorpe prior to joining the ducks around the pond.
In spite of quite a chilly breeze , we stayed sketching until the rain came. After a delicious soup and sandwich lunch, members found sheltered in the hall or in cars to sketch the village cottages.
Ann Pearson explained that the cottages used to house a dentist, a general store, a butcher, a post office and a slaughterhouse. There had also been a tailor, a reading room, a flour mill , a cream cheese maker and a straw hat maker.
