The inaugural Men of the Dales conference was held at Sneaton Castle near Scarborough in February 2017 with Paul Blackham speaking on the Lord's Prayer.

 

But it wasn't all work.  Saturday afternoon, most of the guys went down into Whitby, or stayed at the castle and read a paper, or did absolutely nothing at all and then Saturday evening were were entertained in the bar by Paul Bell who is a singer songwriter who shared many funny songs and stories through the evening.

Below are a range of images from the weekend showing some of the events during the weekend.
