The annual Sportsman's Dinner held at the Leeming Wells Hotel in aid of Manorlands Hospice was a great success last week with thousands of pounds raised for charity.

The guest speaker was Rugby League star Barrie McDermott pictured below centre  with Ivan (right) and Tony Rhodes (left) of Club Olympus.

Prop-Forward Barrie played for Oldham, Wigan and the Leeds Rhino's.

He played in 2 Grand Finals, 3 Challenge Cup Finals and a World Club Challenge. He won 1 Grand Final winners ring , a Challenge Cup winners medal and a World Club Challenge winners medal. Barrie played 283 games for Leeds scoring 40 tries including 1 hat-trick.

Barrie is currently the head of youth development at Leeds Rhino's. He gave a very inspiring after-dinner speech at the Olympus Headquarters, Leeming Wells in the UK. He was great company and is looking forward to coming out to Tenerife for his hols.

He's a right lump isn't he? (Barrie I mean)

The UK office of the Olympus Group is based at our beautiful Boutique Hotel in Yorkshire. Lots of Club Olympus owners use The Leeming Wells Hotel for quick breaks in the fabulous Yorkshire countryside.

The hotel location is perfect for visiting the home of the world famous Bronte sisters who lived in the next door village of Haworth. It is also perfect for walking, cycling, fishing and generally exploring the Yorkshire Dales. Right next door is the Dog and Gun pub which is famous for its outstanding traditional cooking and Timothy Taylors ale selection.

Another great attraction of the area is the Worth valley steam railway with its tiny terminal station just a few minutes away. When I last visited the hotel just a short while ago, my wife and I went to the railway.

I'm the one on the right of the picture by the way! Oh, and before you start, my wife also thinks that I look an idiot in a flat cap but it was quite cool weather even in summer and it's traditional and I'm going bald and I like it.....so there!

Anyway, the driver (who is also wearing the traditional, if somewhat grubbier, flat cap and was NOT called an idiot by my wife) was kind enough to invite us onto the footplate which was brilliant. It was the first time I have ever been on the plate and it was a great insight. You know, steam engines really do feel alive and without a doubt they have a personality. The feel, the smell and the atmosphere on the footplate was just amazing and made me feel like a kid again.

I couldn't stop smiling, I mean, who wouldn't want to be where I am in that shot above. It will be a fabulous job in winter but on a hot day, whew!

The driver spent a good 15 minutes with us and gave us an in-depth 'talk through' of all the levers, gauges and workings - superb.

The coal from the Tender (shown above) is shovelled by the fireman at an incredible rate into the firebox, below

The coalfire boils water circulating round the firebox, the resulting steam drives the huge pistons which turns the wheels. Simple.

It was a wonderful experience and just a delight that it is so close to Leeming Wells. If you manage to visit our lovely little hotel then make a point of visiting the working steam railway that services quite a few villages in the Worth Valley.

The whole area is just waiting to be discovered and we would love to give you a Club Olympus welcome to our bit of Yorkshire.

However........................!

Tenerife still takes a bit of beating  ;-)

 

Cheers and all the best

After posting about Annie the 'Club Olympus baby goat' recently, many members have asked how she is doing. Well here she is!

Annie is based at Leeming Wells (Club Olympus UK Head Office)  with Jodie Rhodes and as you can see, she is thriving. When she is not in the offices she is at Jodie's house. When in the house she has to wear her 'nappy' to avoid "baby-goat accidents"! It doesn't stop her eating the tea-towels of course!
