The Greater Elland Historical Society held its 2012 Annual Dinner at Elland Golf Club on Wednesday 7th March with 42 members and friends in attendance. Once again our Social and Publicity Secretary Mr David J Glanfield organised this long standing event to the highest standard. ‘Grace’ was said by Mrs Maureen Odams (vice chair) before a sumptuous three course meal was served by the Golf Club staff.


This year’s guest speaker was one of our members Mr Derek Gledhill who enthralled the members with a mixture of funny and moving reminiscences from his time as a reporter for the Yorkshire Post from the 1950’s to the 1990’s. Derek’s talk was well received and he was duly thanked by Chairman Mr Graeme Williams. Graeme also thanked the Golf Club Staff and David Glanfield for all his hard work and it was agreed that the evening had once again been a resounding success.
