The St Andrew Society of York is a member of the Burns Federation Yorkshire District and in April each year members enjoy attending the ‘Tartan Ball’, usually held at the Holiday Inn, Dodworth, Barnsley.
The annual bowls day is also popular with Yorkshire Scots and this year York were winners of the Bowls Competition.
Congratulations to York member Murray Halliday on becoming Vice-President of RBWF Yorkshire District and we wish him well in this role. He is seen here receiving the chain of office from President Ann Macaskill.
A date for your diary in 2020 is the Tartan Ball on Saturday 18th April.
 
Jim Robertson reports that for the first time since the 1980’s, York won the Bowls Competition,
winning all their games! (team: Murray Halliday & Jim Robertson). Bradford, who won last year, were second.
Bradford did however have success in winning the quiz competition. Jim & Murray are seen here receiving the Winners Cup from President Ann Macaskill. (see below)
